|15 A hydrated salt is a solid that includes water
molecules within its crystal structure. A student heated a 9.10-gram
sample of a hydrated salt to
a constant mass of 5.41 grams. What percent by mass of water did the salt contain?
(1) 3.69% (3) 40.5%
(2) 16.8% (4) 59.5%
|3||water= 9.10-5.41= 3.69g H2O
(3.69/9.10) x 100= 40.5%
