Percent Yield

Theoretical Yield The maximum amount of product that can be produced from a given amount of reactant Theoretical yield is calculated using stoichiometry

Actual Yield The amount of product actually produced when the chemical reaction is carried out in an experiment

Percent Yield A comparison of the actual and theoretical yield
In general, the higher the yield, the better the results are from the experiment. % Yield = actual yield (experiment) theoretical yield (calculation) × 100

Steps Identify what is given in the problem.
One product and one reactant (go to step 2) One product and two reactants (go to step 3) The product given is the actual yield, calculate the theoretical yield using stoichiometry and the reactant given The product given is the actual yield, calculate the limiting reactant and that becomes your theoretical yield Calculate the percent yield using the equation

Determine the theoretical yield of Ag2CrO4 if 0
Determine the theoretical yield of Ag2CrO4 if g of AgNO3 is used to react with K2CrO4. Also if g of Ag2CrO4 is obtained from an experiment, calculate the percent yield. 2 AgNO3 + 1 K2CrO Ag2CrO KNO3 0.500g AgNO3 1 mol AgNO3 1 mol AgCrO g AgCrO4 g AgNO mol AgNO3 1 mol AgCrO4 % Yield = Actual g AgCrO4 Theoretical g AgCrO4 × = ×100 = 93.2% = g AgCrO4
