How many protons, electrons, and neutrons does an atom with atomic number 50 and mass number 125 contain?
a
70 neutrons, 75 protons, 50 electrons
b
120 neutrons, 50 protons, 75 electrons
c
50

protons, 50 electrons, 75 neutrons
d
75 electrons, 50 protons, 50 neutrons

50 protons, 50 Electrons and 75 Neutrons.
The Atomic number is the number of protons in the nucleus of an atom, while the mass number is the sum of the protons plus the neutrons. [ The electrons have near 0 mass so they don't add up to the mass number and unless the atom is an isotope, the number of protons is always equal to those of electrons. ]

If 20.0 grams of Ca combines completely with 16.0 grams of S to form a compound, what is the percent composition of Ca in the compound?
a
1.25%
b
20.0%
c
44.4%
d
55.6%
**Weegy:** 44.4% is the percent composition of S in the compound. **User:** If 20.0 grams of Ca combines completely with 16.0 grams of S to form a compound, what is the percent composition of Ca in the compound? **Weegy:** The total mass of the compound is 20 + 16 g, or 36 g.
Of that 36 g, 20 is Ca. [ So the fraction of Ca is 20 / 36.
To change that to % multiply by 100, so..
% Ca is 20 / 36 X 100% or 55.555555%

Which of the following compounds has the lowest percent gold content by weight?
A) AuOH
B) Au(OH)3
C) AuCl3
D) AuI3 **Weegy:** compounds has the lowest percent gold content by weight: D) AuI3
molar mass AuOH = 213.997 g/mol
% Au = 196.97 x 100 / 213.997 = 92.1
molar mass Au(OH)3 = 247.99 g/mol
% Au = 196.97 x 100 / 247.99=79.4
molar mass AuCl3 = 303.329 g/mol
% Au = [ 196.97 x 100/ 303.329=64.9
molar mass AuI3 = 577.682 g/mol

Find the slope of the line x = -3.
a
-3
b
0
c
3
d
undefined
User: Find the slope of the line x = -3.
a
-3
b
0
c
3
d
undefined
**Weegy:** Undefined slope is when the line is vertical, and the slope is infinite (technically). Any y value is irrelevant in this kind of line, so in slope intercept, the equation is x = -3. [ Putting it in standard form, you get x + 3 = 0 The answer is x + 3 = 0. I hope this is helpful. :) ] **User:** Write an equation of the line that passes through (10,-4) and is perpendicular to the line whose equation is y = 2/5x - 8.
a
y = 2/5x - 8
b
y = 2/5x + 58/5
c
y = -5/2x + 21
d
y = -5/2x - 29
**Weegy:** y = -5/2x - 29 (More)
