Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Julia on Friday, May 27, 2011 at 1:36pm.

need to calculate percent yield of MgNH4PO4 . 6H2O obtained in my experiment using 10-52-10 plant food label as a guide to determine the theoretical yield of MgNH4PO4 . 6H2O.

My calculations so far:
air dry weight of MgNH4PO4 . 6H2O = 2.30 g
Grams of phosphorusin MgNH4PO4 6H20 = 0.290g
%P in plant food = 24.16
% P2O5 in equivalent to %P above = 55.45
% p2O5 in 10-52-10 plant food = 52

How do I proceed to calculate percent yield?
