Theoretical yield

Postby Jennah Muhammad 1H » Sun Oct 15, 2017 11:17 pm

After finding the empirical formula the module stops, so how do I get from the empirical formula to the theoretical yield in order to find the actual yield?

In order to find the theoretical yield all you need to do is find the moles of the products, and then turn those moles into grams using the molecule's molecular weight. You can't use this to find the actual yield, however. The actual yield is something that must be given, as it is the result of a practical lab experiment and cannot be determined by calculations based on empirical and molecular formulas.
