How to Calculate Percent Abundance?


If you're referring to atomic percent in chemistry, you need to divide the number of atoms in the molecule or compound molecule by the atoms of each substance and multiply by 100. If you're calculating abundance by mass (the more likely scenario) by atomic weights. You can find atomic weights on any periodic table.

How to Calculate Percent Abundances
An isotope of an element is a variant in the nuclear makeup of the atom. Isotopes have different numbers of neutrons from atom to atom of the same element. The number of protons in the nucleus does not change from atom to atom. The mass number for every... More »
