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
