How do you calculate the percent composition of an element?

Percent Composition

  1. Find the molar mass of all the elements in the compound in grams per mole.
  2. Find the molecular mass of the entire compound.
  3. Divide the component’s molar mass by the entire molecular mass.
  4. You will now have a number between 0 and 1. Multiply it by 100% to get percent composition.

What is the percent composition of each element in Na2CO3?

So, Percentage of Sodium [Na] in Sodium Carbonate [Na2CO3] = 46/106 x 100 = 43.40%. Percentage of Carbon [C] in Sodium Carbonate [Na2CO3] = 12/106 x 100 = 11.32%. Percentage of Oxygen [O] in Sodium Carbonate [Na2CO3] = 48/106 x 100 = 45.28%.
