There's a stoichiometry problem for it:

(given mass)*(1mol of given)*(# of moles of required)*(molar mass of required)


(molar mass of given)*(# of moles of given) *(1mol of required)

Given mass is the mass you are told, (say 2.0g of HCl) and the "given" is the component (HCl) that you were given the mass of. Required mass is the mass you are trying to find, or your actual yield, and the "required" is the component whose mass you are trying to find. Molar mass can be calculated using the Periodic Table. Add the atomic masses of each element in the component. (For example, the molar mass of HCl is approx. 36.5g).

Theoretical yield can be determined in chemistry by using reaction formulas to indicate how many moles of product are yielded. This yield is theoretical as it assumes no sources of error and complete consumption of reactants to create a perfect reaction. Calculating theoretical yield requires balancing the equation to determine how many moles of product result.

HOW TO calculate percentage yield?

actual yield multiply by 100 = % yield theoretical yield

In Part A we saw that the theoretical yield of aluminum oxide is 1.70 mol . Calculate the percent yield if the actual yield of aluminum oxide is 1.24 mol .?

The actual yield is 73 %.

How calculate the percantage yield in balanced chemical equation?

By applying formula, actual yield/theoretical yield (100)

How do you calculate percentage yield?

# Determine the limiting reagent; # Calculate the expected yield if the reaction goes to 100% completion. # Divide the actual yield by the expected yield and multiply by 100. The result is percentage yield.

What if i don't know the yield percent?

Do you need it? Are you being told to calculate it? percent yield = (actual yield) divided by (theoretical yield) x 100

The amount of product formed as the result of conducting an experiment is referred to as the?

How much products is collected during a chemical reaction is called the yield. You can calculate your %yield by dividing your yield by the theoretical yield and multiplying by 100.

If a student used 1.34 g of silver to produce silver nitrate and the actual yield was 2.01 g how do you calculate the percentage yield show the steps?


Is actual yield greater or less than theoretical yield?

The actual yield is less than the theoretical yield.

Is experimental yield the same as percent yield or actual yield?

The percentage yield is the Actual Yield divided by the Theoretical Yield, all multiplied by 100. Percentage = [(Actual)/(Theoretical)] x 100

Calculate the percent yield of chlorine gas in the decomposition of hydrochloric acid if 25.8 grams of hydrochloric acid produces 13.6 grams of chlorine gas?

(13.6 g Actual yield/50.25 theoretical yield)*100=27% percent yield

What is the percent yield of 122 grams of product?

If this is the actual yield, real amount produced, then you need the theoretical yield to find the percent yield. % yield = (actual yield / theoretical yield) x 100

If the actual yield of Mg3N2 is 47.87 g and the theoretical is 50.26 g What is the percent yield?

Percent yield = Actual Yield / Theoretical Yield * 100 hope that helps :)
