## 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.
