A 1.1324 g sample of magnetite ore was dissolved in concentrated HCl to give a solution that contained a mixture of Fe2+ and Fe3+. Nitric acid was added and the solution was boiled for a few minutes, which converted all of the iron to Fe3+. The Fe3+ was then precipitated as Fe2O3*xH2O by addition of NH3. After filtration and washing, the residue was ignited at a high temp to give 0.5394 g of pure Fe2O3. What is the percent Fe and the percent Fe3O4 in the sample?
