Question #2560

The compound V2Sx is 38.85%V by mass. What is x

Expert's answer

The molar weight of the compound is (51*2 + 32 + x) = 134+x

The part of V can be calculated as 51*2 / (134+x) = 0.3885, thus

x = 102/0.3885 - 134 =& 128.54.

The molecular weight of X is approximately corresponds to Tellurium
