The percentage yield is calculated using this equation:
Copper oxide reacts with sulfuric acid to make copper sulfate and water. In an experiment, 1.6 g of dry copper sulfate crystals are made. If the theoretical yield is 2.0 g, calculate the percentage yield of copper sulfate.
actual yield = 1.6 g
percentage yield = 80%
In an experiment, the theoretical yield is 3.2 g but the actual yield is only 2.4 g. Calculate the percentage yield.
percentage yield = 75%
