# Percent Yeild

The theoretical yield for a reaction is 627.0 g of SF$_6$. An experiment only yields 627.8g. What is the percent yield?

Percent yield measures the efficiency of a chemical reaction by comparing the actual amount of product obtained to the maximum amount predicted (theoretical yield). A percent yield closer to 100% indicates a more efficient reaction, while a lower percent yield suggests losses or incomplete reactions. It helps in understanding reaction effectiveness and optimizing laboratory processes.. To find the percent yield, divide the actual yield by the theoretical yield, then multiply by 100. In this case, divide 627.8 g by 627.0 g and multiply the result by 100 to get the percent yield of the reaction.
