Question

# Before going to lab, a student read in his lab manual that the percent yield for a difficult reaction to be studied was likely to be only $40.\%$ of the theoretical yield. The student’s prelab stoichiometric calculations predict that the theoretical yield should be $12.5 \mathrm{~g}$. What is the student’s actual yield likely to be?

Solution

Verified
In this problem we are asked to determine the student's actual yield if theoretical yield is 12.5 g and percent yield is 40$\%$.
