How to find the Mass Fraction?
For most, this, amongst anything else Chemistry, isn’t a topic we easily accept as necessary knowledge in the world of engineering.
After all, we are trying to become Professional Engineers – not professional chemists, but…
We as engineers must understand the relationships between the structures and the properties of substances when specifying the materials within our designs.
Failing to do so can only increase the risks of catastrophic failure.
In this video, we dive into an FE Exam Practice Problem in the subject of CHEMISTRY, showing you how to quickly and efficiently solve these types of problems.
What is a MASS FRACTION?
A MASS FRACTION is a ratio that represents the mass of a particular substance in relation to the total mass of the mixture as a whole.
It can also be expressed, with a denominator of 100, as a percentage by mass (in commercial contexts often called percentage by weight, abbreviated wt%). It is one way of expressing the composition of a mixture in a dimensionless size, others being the MOLE FRACTION and the VOLUME FRACTION.
So how can we find the Mass Fraction?
Check out the video and see how we can go about solving this type of problem in the most efficient manner.
We are here to help.
