A student found that her mixture was 15 percent NH4cl 20 percent NaCl and 75 percent Sio2 Assuming her calculations are correct what did she most likely do incorrectly in her experiment?

  • Chemistry -

    Her calculations are in excess of 100%, and add to 110%. She therefore measured the three ingredients of the mixture incorrectly.
