Theoretical yield calculator helps to find the products of a complete chemical reaction. It helps to determine the efficiency of a reaction which helps gain maximum industrial profit.
Theoretical yield = actual yield/percent yield x 100 %
Example 1: Determine the Theoretical yield if the actual yield = 3000 and percent yield is 30%
In the given question, we need to find theoretical yield
Given , actual yield = 3000 liters
Percent yield = 30 %
According to the formula for Theoretical yield
Theoretical yield = actual yield/percent yield x 100
Theoretical yield = (3000 liters / 30) x 100
= 100 x 100 = 10000 Liters
Answer ; Theoretical yield = 10,000 Liters.
Example 2: Explain the difference between Theoretical yield and actual yield
Actual yield is the amount of product that is actually produced in the lab during the experiment. Theoretical yield is the amount
of product that is supposed to be produced in ideal conditions.
But while working in the lab many experimental errors are made that makes the actual yield much less than the theoretical
yield. At times some impurities and side products that are not filtered make the actual yield more than the Theoretical yield.
