  1. Convert 0.47g 2-naphthol to mols. mol = g/molar mass.

    Using the coefficients in the balanced equation, convert mols 2-naphthol to mols 2-butoxynaphthalene.

    Convert mol 2-butoxynaphthalene to grams. g = mols x molar mass. This is the theoretical yield.

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