A student reacts benzene,C6H6. with bromine. Br2. in an attempt to prepare bromobenzene.
C6H6 + Brl·---·-_·_-> C6HSBr + HBr
(a) What is the theoretical yield of bromobenzene in this reaction when 60.0 g of benzene reacts with 60.0 g Brl?
b) If the actual yield of bromobenzene was 56.7 g • what was the percentage yield?
This is a limiting reagent problem. Here is a worked example. Just follow the steps.
