A certain amount of methane is burned. Using stoichiometry it is calculated that 18.85 g of carbon dioxide should be produced. Carried out in the lab, 16.34 g of carbon dioxide are actually produced. What is the theoretical yield of the reaction?

  • Chemistry -

    18.85 g CO2 is the theoretical yield.
    Actual yield is 16.34.
    Percent yield, although you didn'task for it, is
    %Yield = (16.34/18.85)*100 = ?
