Convert the composition of the following alloy from atom percent to weight percent (a) 44.9 at% of silver, (b) 46.3 at% of gold, and (c) 8.8 at% of copper. The atomic weights for silver, gold, and copper are 107.87, 196.97, and 63.55 g/mol, respectively.


Expert Answer

Step 1

Assume that there are 100 mol of composition.

Mass of Ag = mol x molecular mass = 44.9 mol x 107.87 g/mol = 4843.363 g

Mass of Au = 46.3 mol x 196.97g/...
