Uh, you might start by googling for the average composition of Jupiter's atmosphere to the depth that the Galileo mission's probe survived...

Jupiter doesn't have a homogeneous constitution so a singular coefficient is meaningless.

Surely a proportionally sound average of all known constituents would yield a somewhat informative estimation.

Considering the variety of high pressure phases and multitude of unknowns involved, no.
