C2H4(g) + H2O(l)
→ C2H5O(l)

what is the rendition percentage if 4.50g of C2H4 produce 4.7g of ethyl alcohol?

  • Chemistry -

    I have no idea what a "rendition percent" is. I'm skeptical that the product is C2H5O. I think it may be C2H6O
    Finish (if necessary) and balance the equation.
    Convert 450 g of C2H4 to mols. mols = grams/molar mass.
    Use the coefficients in the balanced equation to convert mols C2H4 to the product.
    Convert mols product to grams. g = mols x molar mass. This is the theoretical yield (TY). The actual yield (AY) is 4.7g.

    % yield = (AY/TY)*100 = ?
