You calculate the total amount of whatever it is that you want to find the silicon abundance for. Then you calculate the amount f silicon in that.

Then percentage abundance of silicon = 100*amount of silicon/total amount

Typically the amount would be measured as the mass.

How do you calculate the fractional abundance of Cl-37?

The fractional abundance is calculated by dividing the abundance of the isotope of interest by the abundance of all the isotopes of the element. For chlorine-37, the percent abundance is 0.2434, or 24.34%.

Why is each isotope's mass multiplied by the isotope's percent abundance?

That is done to calculate the weighted average.

What is is the result when you total the individual relative abundance?

the result is 1.00, because relative abundance is just the percent abundance in decimal form. The percent abundance sum is 100%, therefore the answer is 1.00 because the decimal of 100% is 1.00

What are the major elements found on your planet?

The most abundant elements in Earth are oxygen, silicon, aluminium, iron, calcium, sodium, magnesium, potassium. Other elements' abundance is less than one percent.

What are the common elements found in the earth's crust?

In just the crust, the estimated abundance is: 1. Oxygen 2. Silicon 3. Aluminum 4. Iron 5. Calcium *For the whole planet, the estimated abundance by mass would shift to iron, oxygen, silicon, magnesium, and nickel.

What is the percent abundance of cobalt in the universe?

Its percent abundance is 0%.* * Co60 has a relatively short half-life of 5.27 years, and so, is not found in nature at all. Therefore, its percent abundance is not relevant. It is produced artificially.

What is percent abundance?

Take percent abundance times atomic mass for each isotope then add all up for average atomic mass.

Where are the elements oxygen and silicon found?

Oxygen and Silicon like many elements is not found in the elementary form, but these two are available in abundance in molecular forms. O2 is about 21% of the atmosphere and Silicon, is available in form of sand (quartz crystals).

Can silicon be found in nature or is it synthetic?

Yes, silicon can be found in nature. And in great abundance, too, as it is one of the most common elements on earth. It is often found in the form of oxides, and examples of silicon oxides are sand and silicate minerals.
