On average, one kilogram of ocean water contains about 35 grams of salt. That is, salts make up about 3.5 percent of ocean water. Though sodium chloride is the most abundant salt in seawater, a variety of other salts are also dissolved in seawater. Your table lists the salts that a scientist recovered by evaporating a 100-gram sample of ocean water. The second column of the table lists the mass of each salt recovered.
Calculate the percentage of each salt found in the 100-gram sample. Record the percent in your data table. Use the following equation to solve this problem.
