Percent Decomposition

Postby Yasmine Choroomi 2C » Sun Nov 20, 2016 1:50 pm

How do you calculate the percent decomposition in general? An example of a question like this is number 47b, and it wants you to find the percent decomposition given an ICE problem.

To get percent decomposition, you need to find the initial amount of the reactant, and then the final amount of the reactant. Then, subtract the final from the initial, and that is the amount that decomposed. Then, divide that number by the initial number, and that should give you the percent decomposition.
