An infant formula was also found to have been contaminated with 0.14 ppm melamine. (The abbreviation ppm stands for parts per million. This means, for example, there is 1 g of a substance per million grams of the product.) What mass of melamine is there in a package of infant formula with a mass of 454 g (one pound)?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Mass of melamine in a package of infant formula with a mass of 454g is to be identified.

Concept Introduction:

Percentage of Weight: The grams of solute in 100 grams of solution, the fallowing formula is,

Percentageweight=Weightofsolute(g)Weightofsolution(g)×100

A hydrogen bonding is partially an electrostatic attraction between H atom which is bonded to more electronegative atom such as N, O, orF and another adjacent atom bearing a lone pair of electron.

Explanation

The chemical formula for melamine is C3H6N6 so the molecular weight of melamine is

C3H6N6Massofcarbonatoms=3×12=36Massofhydrogenatoms=1.01×6=6.01Massofnitrogenatom=14.01×6=84Totalmassvalueofgivencompound=126.13

Next we calculate melamine contaminated with 0
