Step 1

The mass percentage of fluorine is 78.04 %. help_outlineImage Transcriptionclosea) SF6 Molar mass of SF6 is 146.06 g/mol Molar mass of fluorine is 18.998403 g/mol The mass percentage of fluorine is calculated as follows, mass of F The mass percent of F = x 100 Total mass 6x18.998 g/mol The mass percent of F x 100 146.06 g/mol The mass percent of F 0.1300 x 100 The mass percent of F = 78.04 % fullscreen
Step 2

The mass percentage of fluorine is 45.25 %. help_outlineImage Transcriptioncloseb) NaF Molar mass of NaF is 41.98817 g/mol Molar mass of fluorine is 18.998403 g/mol The mass percentage of fluorine is calculated as follows, mass of F The mass percent of F = x 100 Total mass 18.998 g/mol The mass percent of F x 100 41.98817 g/mol The mass percent of F 0.4525 x 100 The mass percent of F = 45.25% fullscreen
