Help finding the percent yield of biodiesel.
Yield of biodiesel / mL =45.9ml
Yield of biodiesel / g
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) =?
