if C6H12O6 -> 2 C2H5OH + 2 CO2 represents the fermentation of sugar to produce alcohol, and the reaction is only 40.0% efficient (% yield), what is the actual yield of alcohol from 454 g of C6H12O6

  1. Another stoichiometry problem but with a slight hitch at the end. Here is a solved example of a stoichiometry problem. Just follow the steps.

    After you have gone through the example, you will have arrived at the theoretical yield. Just multiply that by 0.400 to arrive at the actual yield.
