Chemistry C2 - Percentage Yield and Reversible Reactions

HideShow resource information

Percentage yield compares actual and predicted yield 

- the amount of product you get is known as the yield. The moer reactants you start with, the higher the actual yield will be. But the percentage yield doesnt depend on the amount of reactants you started with - it's a percentage 

1) The predicted yield of a reaction can be calculated from the balanced reaction equation 

2) percentage yield is given in the formula: 

Percentage yield = actual yield (grams) / predicted yield (grams) x 100 

3) a 100% percentage yield means that you got all the product
