3.3 Percentage Composition in Mixtures

Learning Intentions (L.I)

At the end of this video, you should be able to:

  • describe how to calculate % comp of a component of a mixture


Success Criteria (S.C)

You should be able to do the following to illustrate how you know the L.I:

  • Correctly describe the process of separation via sieving
  • Draw a diagram to illustrate the concept of % comp
  • complete a % comp calculation relating to mixtures




In this section we increae our understanding of % comp in relation to mixtures. With a simple mixture, we can easily calculate the % one component is of a whole. We can apply the same technique to then calculate % composition of all parts of complex mixtures.
