Theoretical Yield Calculator

Theoretical Yield Calculator is used to find the total product used in the chemical reaction. It also provides a step-by-step solution to every problem.

What is the Theoretical Yield?

According to the concentration of the limiting reactant, the theoretical yield is the greatest amount of product that can be produced through a chemical reaction. The theoretical yield assumes that the reaction is completely performed and formed the product then there is no product lost due to side reactions, impurities, and other factors.

Formula to Find the Theoretical Yield:

Theoretical Yield = (Actual Yield/Percent Yield) x 100%

Simply written as.

y = (Ay/Py) x 100%

How to calculate the Theoretical yield?

Example 1:

If the Actual Yield is 15 and the percent yield is 43 then find the theoretical yield.

Solution:

Step 1:

Write the data carefully from the given question.

Actual Yield = AY = 15, Percent Yield = PY = 43, Theoretical Yield = TY =?

Step 2:

Write the Formula of the Theoretical Yield.

y = (Ay/Py) x 100%

Step 3:

Put the values in the above formula and simplify.

AY = 15, PY = 43

y = (15/43) x 100%

y = 0.3488x 100%

y = 35

Thus, the theoretical yield is “35” for the given inputs.

Example 2:

If the Actual Yield is 73 and the percent yield is 100 then find the theoretical yield.

Solution:

Step 1:

Write the data carefully from the given question.

Actual Yield = AY = 73, Percent Yield = PY = 100, Theoretical Yield = TY =?

Step 2:

Write the Formula of the Theoretical Yield.

y = (Ay/Py) x 100%

Step 3:

Put the values in the above formula and simplify.

AY = 73, PY = 100

y = (73/100) x 100%

y = 0.73x 100%

y = 73

Thus, the theoretical yield is “73” for the given inputs.
