Great, helpful explanations of lots of reactions :)

Emily (Student) November 10 2016

Really helpful in explaining difficult questions :)

Izzy (Student) April 27 2016

very helpful! I sent some homework before the lesson and he came prepared with the answers and step by step how to get them. I've always struggled with maths in chemistry, and I'm finally starting to understand it!

### Calculate the percentage, by mass, of carbon in sodium hydrogencarbonate (NaHCO3)

When faced with this style of problem there are steps to correctly answer the quesion: Step 1 - identify the atomic mass of carbon Step 2 - calculate the atomic mass of the compound Step 3 - work out the percentage, by mass, of carbon in the compound Method: Step 1: To  calculate the atomi...

When faced with this style of problem there are steps to correctly answer the quesion:

Step 1 - identify the atomic mass of carbon

Step 2 - calculate the atomic mass of the compound

Step 3 - work out the percentage, by mass, of carbon in the compound

Method:

Step 1:

To  calculate the atomic mass, a periodic table is required. The atomic mass of each element is located at the top of the element, displayed as a number. In this case carbon has an atomic mass of 12 g/mol.

Step 2:

The same principles in step 1 are required and applied to the remaining atoms in the compound - sodium hydrogen carbonate. The atoms in the compound are sodium (Na), hydrogen (H), carbon (C) and oxygen (O). Looking at the value of atomic mass on the periodic table, the values of atomic mass are as follows:

Na = 23 g/mol

H = 1 g/mol

C = 12 g/mol

O = 16 g/mol

There is 1 Na atom, 1 H atom, 1 C atom and 3 O atoms in the compound. Now add these values together to get the atomic mass of the compound as such:

23+1+12+(3*16) = 84 g/mol

Step 3:

Now the percentage, by mass, needs to be calculated. The general rule for calculating a percentage is:

percentage = (value/total)*100%

Therefore by applying this rule for our problem we find that

Percentage = (12/84)*100% = 14.3 % (to 1 d.p)

### What are isotopes and how do they differ from each other?

An isotope is a different form of the same element. They differ from each other by the number of neutrons, however they have the same number of protons and electrons. This results in a different atomic mass. Lets use an example - carbon: Carbon (C) can form different isotopes, with the most a...

An isotope is a different form of the same element. They differ from each other by the number of neutrons, however they have the same number of protons and electrons. This results in a different atomic mass.

Lets use an example - carbon:

Carbon (C) can form different isotopes, with the most abundant being C-12 and C-13.

C has 6 protons (stated under the element on a periodic table) and an equal number of electrons to balance the charge. C-12 has 6 neutrons and C-13 has 7 neutrons, because adding the number of neutrons and protons determines the atomic mass of the isotope (electrons have negligable mass).
