Question

An analysis of a pyrex glass showed 12.9% B2O3, 2.2% Al2O3, 3.8% Na2O, 0.4% K2O and remaining is SiO2. What is the ratio of Si to B atoms in the glass?

Solution

Correct option is

11 : 3

 

SiO2 present in 100 g glass

                                   = 100 – (12.9 + 2.2 + 3.8 +0.4) = 80.7 g

                                 = 

                                 = 1.345 mole of SiO2

                                 = 1.345 mol of Si atoms

                                   

B2O3present in 100 g glass =12.9 g

                                 = 

                                 = 0.184 mole of B2O3

                                 = 

                                 =
