lithitum is an element not a compound. lithium makes compounds with other elements such as lithium carbonate and lithium hydroxide.

To work out the mass of one element within a compound (ie the mass of Lithium in Lithium Carbonate), first work out the RFM (Relative Formula Mass) of the compound. To do this, look on the periodic table (PT) & add up the RAM (Relative Atomic Mass) of all of the atoms in the compound (the RAM is the larger of the 2 numbers in each box on the PT). So, if the formula for one molecule of Lithium Carbonate is Li2CO3, then the RFM is Li + Li + C + O + O + O = 7 + 7 + 12 + 16 + 16 + 16 = 74 Next work out what percentage of the compound is the element you want to know. So, Lithium accounts for 14 (2 Lithiums = 7 x 2) out of every 74 grams of Lithium Carbonate. As a percentage, this is ( 14 / 74 ) x 100 = 18.9 %. So, 18.9% of 1.55g [ ( 1.55 / 100 ) x 18.9 ] = 0.29g So there is 0.29g of Lithium is 1.55g of Lithium Carbonate.
