# How to Calculate the Nickel Content in an Alloy

How much nickel is present in an alloy that contains 14.25% nickel?

The certain alloy contains 14.25% nickel. To determine the amount of nickel present in the alloy, we can use the percentage given.

## Calculating Nickel Content in an Alloy

**To calculate the amount of nickel** in the alloy, we need to follow these steps:

- Convert the percentage to decimal form by dividing it by 100.
- Multiply the decimal form by the total weight or quantity of the alloy.

For example, if the alloy weighs 100 grams, the calculation would be:

0.1425 (14.25%) × 100 = 14.25 grams

This means that for every 100 grams of the alloy, there are 14.25 grams of nickel present. In a 100-gram sample of the alloy, there would be 14.25 grams of nickel. Therefore, the alloy contains 14.25% nickel by weight.
