How are these values used to determine percent?

actual yield is quantity of a product found to be formed in a chemical reaction and theoretical yield is the amount of product predicted
theoretical yield is larger because in experiments reactions might not always go to completion and systematic errors

  • Chem -

    %yield = (actual/theoretical)*100 = ??
