How to calculate the theoretical yield of a product in a reaction

Hints on how to calculate the theoretical yield of products are essential and can’t be over-emphasized due to the errors students do in exams. Theoretical yield is the amount of product based on stoichiometry calculation while the experimental yield (practical yield) is the amount of product gotten from the experiment. Actually, to get the theoretical…
