Unformatted text preview: CH3COOH Calculate the mass percent of each element in acetic acid. Round your percentages to 1 decimal place. _Solution element moles C 2 mol H 4 mol O 2 mol element moles mass C 2 mol 2 mol X12.011g per mol = 24.022g N 2 mol 4 mol X 1.0079 g per mol = 4.0316 O 6 mol 2 mol X 15.999 g per mol = 31.998 Now add the masses of all the elements to find the total mass of 1 mole of acetic acid element moles mass C H O total mass:...
