How To Find Theoretical Yield: A Simple Guide

1. Balance Your Chemical Equation

2. For Each Reactant, Determine the Molar Mass

3. Use Molar Mass to Convert the Given Amount of the Reactants to Moles

4. Calculate the Molar Ratio between the Reactants

5. Find the Reaction's Ideal Ratio

6. Pinpoint the Limiting Reactant

7. Choose the Desired Product and Determine its Ratio to the Limiting Reactant

8. Multiply the Ratio by the number of Moles of the Limiting Reactant

9. Use the Molar Mass of the Product to Convert the Result to Grams
