The actual yield is the actual amount of product that is produced in a chemical reaction.

The theoretical yield refers to the amount that should be form when the limiting reagent is completely consumed.

The actual yield is expressed as a percentage of the theoretical yield. This is called the percent yield.

To find the actual yield, simply multiply the percentage and theoretical yield together.
