# What is the percent of carbon in 50.0 g of cyclohexane?

Jan 12, 2017

85.62%

#### Explanation:

The molar mass of $C 6 H 12$ (cyclohexane) is $84.16 \frac{g}{m o l}$

$C$ (carbon) has molar mass $12.01$ and has $6$ atoms in cyclohexane.

$12.01 \cdot 6 = 72.06$

$\frac{72.06}{84.16} = 0.856226$

So, Carbon has 85.62% of $C 6 H 12$

In $50 g$ of cyclohexane, there is $42.81 g$ of Carbon.
