Feb 7, 2017

Percentage yield = actual yield /expected yield *100


To calculate the actual yield, the question must tell you the mass of one of the reactants, calculate the no of moles of reactant, use the mole ratio to calculate the no of moles of product then you calculate the mass of the product or yield.
Very much depends on the style of question asked.
Have you studied moles or have you studied reacting masses?
