if i had mixture of sodium carbonate and sand, and spilled some sodium carbonate (no sand spilled) after weighing the mixture, would the spill affect the percentage of sand or sodium carbonate when we calculate it?

    Yes, you would change the composition in that case. However, if it is was a mixture, I don't see how you could spill sodium carbonate without spilling some sand also.
