note: NOT percent composition.

Yes, you can.

### What is mercury's internal composition?

Mercury's internal composition is made up of 70 percent metals and 30 percent silicate. The core is a hot, liquid iron-nickel mixture.

### What is the percent recovery formula in chemistry?

Amount obtained (how much stuff you ended up with)/ Starting amount ( how much stuff you originally started with) x 100= percent recovery Amount obtainedx 100 = percent recovery Starting amount Example: I started with 10g of some impure compound, I purified the compound and ended up with .25g, to find the percent recovery simply plug in numbers... .25/10 x100= 2.5% recovery

### What information is needed to find the percent of composition?

### What is mercury internal?

Mercury's internal composition is made up of 70 percent metals and 30 percent silicate. The core is a hot, liquid iron-nickel mixture.

### How do you calculate relative recovery?

Percent Recovery = (mass of purified substance /mass of impure substance) x100

### What do you need to calculate the percent-age composition of a substance?
