Converting Between Atomic Percent And Weight Percent Values

When analyzing information on ores, minerals and metals, we often need to be able to convert between atomic percent and weight percent values of constituent elements, and vice versa, to better understand the tonnages involved and their implications.

To this end, yesterday at Terra Magnetica I published an article that shows you how to quickly do this, without needing to resort to arcane chemistry texts.  Imaginatively called "How To Convert Atomic Percent To Weight Percent And Vice Versa" it includes simple methods to:
  • Convert from atomic percent to weight percent;
  • Convert from weight percent to atomic percent.
  • Convert from a chemical formula to weight percent.
I also included a number of relevant examples to see how to do the conversions.

I hope it's of some use; you can access the "how to" article here.
