-The amount of product that could form when the limiting reagent runs out

-The maximum amount that could form

Example: 3 scoops of ice cream + 1 cone =1 ice cream cone.

-The limiting Reagent is the cones, so the theoretical yield is 1 ice cream cone because that is how much formed when the limiting reagent (waffle cones) are completely used up.

-the number of the limiting reagent is the theoretical yield.

-The maximum amount that could form

-The limiting Reagent is the cones, so the theoretical yield is 1 ice cream cone because that is how much formed when the limiting reagent (waffle cones) are completely used up.

-the number of the limiting reagent is the theoretical yield.

-a measure of how well the reaction went.

-a comparison to what you actually got in the experiment to what you should have gotten (theo. yield.)

Equation:

Actual Yield/Theoretical Yield. x100

Example: 8/10=80% yield which means you attempted to make 10 ice cream cones but only had 8 waffle cones, so that is how many you could make in total.
