Unformatted text preview: se conservation of mass to calculate the mass of reactant in excess that remains after the reaction or the mass of product(s) that form(s). Yields of Reactions • theoretical yield: amount of product predicted using the balanced equation when limiting reagent is used up (can be calculated) • actual yield: amount of product one actually obtains (generally given in the problem) Percent yield = actual yield 100% theoretical yield • Solve for the percent yield given the actual yield and solving for the theoretical yield. • Solve for the mass of reactant needed to get an actual yield or product given the percent yield and the balanced chemical equation • Sol...
