# How do you calculate actual yield?

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.
