Given the density of copper 8.96g/mL, zinc 7.14g/mL, and brass 8.36g/mL. What is the fraction of copper and zinc in brass (expressed as %)? Please show me step by step how to calculate this. Thank you.

  • Chemistry -

    Let x = fraction Cu
    Then 1-x = fraction Zn
    --------------------
    (x*8.96) + (1-x)*7.14 = 8.36
    Solve for x and 1-x and convert fractions to percent.
