    Molar mass Fe = 55.84g/mol

    Fe2 = 55.84*2 = 111.68

    Molar mass Fe2O3 = 159.69g/mol

    Conversion factor = 111.68/159.69 = 0.699

    The conversion factor is 0.699 ( you could most probably happily work with 0.7

    Using Example: Mass of Fe2O3 in sample = 57.4g

    Mass of Fe in sample = 57.4*0.7 = 40.18g

    You can have several conversion factors

    1 Fe2O3 molecules = 2 atoms Fe

    1 mole Fe2O3 = 2 moles Fe

    160 g Fe2O3 = 112 g Fe

    All you need to do, is apply the conversion factor. The conversion factor for Fe2O3 is 1.4298

    element percent = oxide percent /conversion factor

    or

    Assuming you know the element percent and you need to convert it the oxide percent,

    then, oxide percent = element percent x conversion factor

    For every one iron (III) oxide, there is two iron atoms.

    1 mol Fe2O3 = 2 mol Fe

    Cheers!
