Theoretical Yield Calculator is a free online tool that displays the amount of product predicted with the complete utilisation of the limiting reactant in the chemical reaction. BYJU’S online theoretical yield calculator tool makes the calculation faster and it displays the theoretical yield value of the chemical reaction in a fraction of seconds.
How to Use the Theoretical Yield Calculator?
The procedure to use the theoretical yield calculator is as follows:
Step 1: Enter the actual yield, percent yield and x for the unknown in the input field
Step 2: Now click the button “Calculate x” to get the theoretical yield value
Step 3: Finally, the theoretical yield of the chemical reaction will be displayed in the output field
What is Meant by Theoretical Yield?
In a chemical reaction, the theoretical yield is defined as the amount of product predicted by stoichiometry based on the number of complete reactants. Whereas the actual yield is defined as the amount of product actually produced by the reactant in the chemical reaction. The percentage yield can be calculated by dividing the actual yield to the theoretical yield. The theoretical yield is represented by moles or grams. The theoretical yield formula is given by
Theoretical yield = (Actual Yield/Percentage yield)× 100
