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 ?

just answer for step 2.

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

electrokidBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
at. wt. of Cl = ? you have to refer to your Preiodic table

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

electrokidBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
good, so, gmw of HCl = 36.5 what this means is that 1mole of HCl weighs 36.5g (g=grams)

electrokidBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
similarly, for BeCl2... notice that there are two atoms of chlorine

practice to write it clearly.. gmw of BaCl2 = ___ + ___ + ____ = ____g

sorry I got 137 is the atomic number for Ba and 35 for Cl
 one year ago

electrokidBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
no.. atomic number = number of protons in the nucleus of an atom atomic mass number = total number of protons + neutrons in the nucleus of an atom

ok so gmw of BaCl2 = ?

good now back to step 2... summarize our values

electrokidBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you see.. those are just numbers.. I cannot help you unless you put meaning to them. gram mol wt of HCL = gram mol wt of BaCl2 =

1mole of HCl weighs 36.5g 1 mole of BaCI2 WEIGHS 172

now, using step 1, 2 moles of HCl  yield > 1mole BaCl2 i.e, 2* gmw of HCL  yields > 1*gmw of BaCl2

now, put your numbers

02*36.5 = 73 g of HCl  > 172g BaCl2
 one year ago

electrokidBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so, 73g HCl > 172g BaCl2 (Theoretical) so, 6.73g HCl  should yield how much? (we have 6.73g HCl and Expected BaCl2 is?)
 one year ago

electrokidBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
no.. HCl is our "reactant"..... BaCl2 is our product
 one year ago

electrokidBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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)

15.5 is the actual yield

6.73 is how much HCI WE HAVE
 one year ago

electrokidBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so, if 73g HCl  provides > 173g BaCl2 then 6.73g HCl  should provide > ____g of BaCl2 this is a simple ratio..

electrokidBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
..... \[{6.73 \times 173 \over 73}=?\]

electrokidBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
ok. but do you understand this?

I had to rethimk the problem
 one year ago

electrokidBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
good. then THIS is your theoretical yield i.e., in theory, that 6.73g of HCl should give us with 15.94g of BaCl2

good thank you for tutoring me

electrokidBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
not done yet that is just part (a)
 one year ago

toxicsugar22Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
part B. is where we do actual yield times theroicatl yield / 100
 one year ago

electrokidBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
(b) % yield = (actual yield) * 100 / (theoretical yield) this value must be less than 100 actual yield = given in problem theoretical yield = calculated above
 one year ago

toxicsugar22Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so 15.5 times 100/ 15.94 =97.23
