Question: a 121374 g sample of an ore containing ni and...

Question details

A 12.1374 g sample of an ore containing Ni and Co was carried through Fresenius’ analytical scheme shown in Figure 1.1. At point A the combined mass of Ni and Co was found to be 0.2306 g, while at point B the mass of Co was found to be 0.0813 g. Report the weight percent Ni in the ore to the correct number of significant figures.
