The mass percentage of B in AB 2 should be calculated. Concept Introduction: For a compound say XY, mass percentage can be calculated by taking ratio of molar mass of element aand molar mass of whole compound. For example: Here, mass percentage of element X will be: % X = M X M X Y Here, M X is molar mass of element X and M X Y is molar mass of compound XY.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The mass percentage of B in AB2 should be calculated.

Concept Introduction:

For a compound say XY, mass percentage can be calculated by taking ratio of molar mass of element aand molar mass of whole compound.

For example: Here, mass percentage of element X will be:

%X=MXMXY

Here, MX is molar mass of element X and MXY is molar mass of compound XY.
