A metal oxide reacts with water to produce a metal hydroxide. What additional information would you need to determine the percent yield of metal hydroxide from this reaction?
theoretical yield and actual yield.
Instead of theoretical yield, if you knew the name of the metal, an equation could be written and the theoretical yield could be calculated.
Thanks! And can you calculate the percent yield if they don't give the actual yield?
No. Unless they give some data that would allow you to calculate actual yield; such as, so much was obtained under different conditions, things like that.
