Answer

Mass percentages of carbon in ethanol = 52.16% Mass percentages of hydrogen in ethanol = 13.24% Mass percentages of oxygen in ethanol = 34.6%

Work Step by Step

Mass percentages of carbon in ethanol = Mass of Carbon / Mass of Etahnol x 100 Mass percentages of Oxygen in ethanol = Mass of Oxygen / Mass of Etahnol x 100 Mass percentages of Hydrogen in ethanol = Mass of Hydrogen / Mass of Etahnol x 100
