Chemistry Journal5.06 Percent YieldDriving Question:How do chemists use percentages and stoichiometry tounderstand the amount of products produced during chemical reactions?WHAT IS THE PERCENT YIELD OF A REACTION?Thepercent yieldof a reaction is the ratio of the actualyield to the theoretical yield multiplied by 100 to make it apercentage.CALCULATING % YIELD STEPS:1.Write the balanced chemical equation for the reaction.2.Identify all important information provided in the wordproblems or data table.3.Solve for the theoretical yield of the reaction, followingall the steps of astoichiometry calculation organizer.Use two calculations if both reactants are provided.4.Use the percent yield equation to calculate the percentyield of the reaction.ACTUAL YIELD VS THEORETICAL YIELD?
