Reaction Yield Reaction Yield W All the calculations we’ve performed assume that the reaction goes to completion and that only the products we’ve written are formed. Sometimes unwanted “by-products” (side-reactions) also occur Products (or reactants) can be lost before they are used or measured W We can calculate the amount of product that should be produced, ideally. This is called theoretical yield.
