I am very confused on this problem. Any help would be great:
50 g of silver nitrate is mixed with 50 g of hydrochloric acid in a water-based solution. A white precipitate forms (silver chloride.) The solution is filtered and the white precipitate collected and dried. The dried precipitate is measured to have a mass of 33.6 g. What is the theoretical and percent yield?
Thanks so much for helping me with this. :)
First, start with a balanced equation. Then, use stoichiometry to determine the limiting reactant and then how much product (AgCl) is produced. Use this (theoretical yield) and the actual yield (33.6g) to determine the percent yield.
Thank you very much, David. I understand it now :D
