You heat 3.886 g of a mixture of Fe3O4 and FeO to form 4.095 g Fe2O3. The mass percent of FeO originally in the mixture was


94.9%.

26.1%.

73.9%.

18.0%.

None of these are correct.

Fe2O3 moles = mass / Molar mass of Fe2O3

= 4.095 g / 159.7 g/mol

= 0.02564

Let FeO moles = m , Fe3O4 moles = 0.02564-m

Mass of FeO = moles x molar mass of FeO

= m x 71.844

mass of Fe3O4 = (0.02564 -m) x 231.533 g/mol

= 5.9365 - 231.533m

total mass of FeO + Fe3O4 = 3.886

71.844 m + 5.9365 - 231.533 m = 3.886

m = 0.01284

FeO mass = 71.844 g/mol x 0.01284 mol = 0.9225g

mass % of FeO = ( 100 x FeO mass/ sample mass)

= ( 100 x 0.9225 g / 3.886 g)

= 23.7 %
