Problem 59P

If the theoretical yield of a reaction is 24.8 g and the actual yield is 18.5 g, what is the percent yield?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 59P

Given that

Actual yield =18.5.

Theoretical yield =24.8

Percent yield =?

We know that

In chemistry, we have theoretical yield, which is the amount of the product calculated from the limiting reactant. The limiting reactant is the reactant in the chemical reaction which limits the amount of product that can be formed.

                    %yield =actual yield /theoretical yield *100

                                =18.5/24.8*100

                                = 74.5

                   %YIELD =74.5%
