Since theoretical yield is the maximum measure of the product of a reactant, actual yield will always be lower as a result of human error that may occur during the reaction process, so unless the problem states specifically what the errors were I don't think we'll be questioned on the reason as to w...

The actual yield usually differs from the theoretical yield due to potential discrepancies and human error that may occur during the process of the experiment, such as mistakes in measuring solutions or temperature, or loss of solution when transferring from beaker to beaker. The theoretical yield i...

Leading zeros, such as the zeros in 0.001 don't count as sig figs, while trailing zeros, such as the zeros in 1.00 do count (when preceded by a decimal point). Anything in between two non-zero numbers such as the zeros in 1.001 count as well! So just remember if it's a leading zero it's not a signif...
