The question will also most likely have the experimental yield shown somewhere, so if that is in kilograms or milligrams or something to that effect it would be best to put the theoretical yield into that unit as well, this will make it simpler if you have to do a percent yield equation.
The question will usually give the actual yield in grams, which means that the theoretical yield should also be in grams of product. If they give another unit then you should convert it to that in order to be able to calculate the percent yield.
the definition for theoretical yield says "amount", so I think we should automatically assume the answer should be in grams if the question didn't say otherwise. Prof.Lavelle also said in class that the unit should be grams I remember.
