Question

Help finding the percent yield of biodiesel.Yield of biodiesel / mL =45.9mlYield of biodiesel / g

=37.935g

Assume that each fatty acid chain contains a total of 18C including 1 C=C

Therefore, the approximate methyl ester molecular weight = 282.84g/mol

Approximate yield of biodiesel / moles = 0.1341mol

Volume of waste vegetable oil used / mL = 55.5ml

% Yield of biodiesel (based on volume) = ?

Weight of waste vegetable oil used / g = 50.21g

Assume that the molar mass of the oil is 884 g/mol

Approximate mass of waste vegetable oil used / moles = 0.05679mol

% Yield of biodiesel (based on moles) =?

v o l u m e Y i e l d % = ( 4 5 . 9 m L / 5 5 . 5 m L ) ... View the full answer
