A compound is found to consist of 1.37g of iron and 2.62g of chlorine. what is the percent by mass of chlorine in the compound?

Answer: The mass percent of chlorine can be calculated using the following rule:
mass % = (mass of chlorine / total compound mass) * 100

From the givens:
mass of chlorine = 2.62 grams
total compound mass = 2.62 + 1.37 = 3.99 grams

Substitute in the equation to get the mass % as follows:
mass % of chlorine = (2.62 / 3.99) * 100 = 65.6641604%

Suppose a lab group reports a percent yield of sand of 105%. Is it really possible to collect more sand than was originally present? What is a possible explanation for the “extra” product? Do not consider calculation mistakes; think about the procedure used.

The maximum percent of yield should be 100%, so It wasn't possible to make a higher than 100% yield like 105% in this problem. If that happens, it will contradict the law of conservation of energy as you can't create mass.

The increased mass might be produced by impurities. One of the examples would be if you rinse the container and left some water. The water is not calculated as a substrate but will increase the results weight.
There also possibilities that some gas in the air react and produce a solid/liquid material. If you don't weight the gas it would seem that the mass increased.

A population expert makes a graph to show the future rates of population growth in various countries. Which is necessary a source of error for him?

The error of the expert is the fact that future trends cannot accurately be predicted.
Population growth is difficult to predict because we don't know the future events that can alter birth rates, death rates, migration, or resource limitations.
For example a disease starts to kill a lot of people, affecting the growth of the population

Exothermic reactions are favored because they release heat to the environment. Would an exothermic reaction be more favored or less favored if it were carried out within a superheated chamber?

Explanation:

No, an exothermic reaction will not be  favored or less favored if it were carried out within a super heated chamber. In the super heated chamber the heat will flow back to the reaction( considering heat emitted by the reaction is less than the heat in a super heated chamber). So, the reaction will shift backward instead, the product will again change into reactant.

If the molecular weight of a semiconductor is 27.9 grams/mole and the diamond lattice constant is 0.503 nm, what is the density of the semiconductor in grams/cc ? Two significant digits, fixed point notation.

Explanation:

The given data is as follows.

Mass = 27.9 g/mol

As we know that according to Avogadro's number there are atom present in 1 mole. Therefore, weight of 1 atom will be as follows.

1 atoms weight =
