Chemistry C2- Percentage yield

HideShow resource information

The principle of conservation of mass lets you calculate the theoretical mass of product expected in a chemical reaction. However, it is not always possible in practice to get the entire calculated amount of product. This is because:

  • Reversible reactions may not go to completion
  • Some product may be lost when it is removed from the reaction mixture
  • Some of the reactants may react in an unexpected way


The yield of a…
