For the following reaction, 6.73 grams of hydrochloric acid are mixed with excess barium hydroxide. The reaction yields 15.5 grams of barium chloride. 2 HCl (aq) + Ba(OH)2 (aq) = BaCl2 (aq) + 2 H2O (l) (1) What is the theoretical yield of barium chloride ? grams (2) What is the percent yield for this reaction ? %

    gram mol weight (gmw) = sum of atmic weights of all the elemnts in the molecule so, gmw of HCl = at. wt. of H + atomic wt. of CL

    17 is the "atomic number" of Cl and 35.5 is the atomic wt.

    good, so, gmw of HCl = 36.5 what this means is that 1mole of HCl weighs 36.5g (g=grams)

    so, 73g HCl ------> 172g BaCl2 (Theoretical) so, 6.73g HCl -------- should yield how much? (we have 6.73g HCl and Expected BaCl2 is?)

    no.. HCl is our "reactant"..... BaCl2 is our product

    ok, so, 73g HCl ----------- reacts to give us (yield) --------> 173g of BaCl2 how much HCl do we have in our reaction? (this part from the given question)

    (b) % yield = (actual yield) * 100 / (theoretical yield) this value must be less than 100 actual yield = given in problem theoretical yield = calculated above
