How do I calculate the theoretical yield of a catalytic hydrogenation? I have the #s, I just have no idea how to apply it.

It's 1-Octene --H2PtCl6--> n-Octane.

    Wouldn't it have been simpler to post the problem?
    Do you have grams 1-octene?
    mols octene = grams/molar mass
    molsl octene = moles octane formed (look at the coefficients in the equation)
    g octane = mols octane x molar mass octane. That's the theoretical yield in grams.
