    In some reactions all of the elements react, however, in many chemical reactions not all the elements react. To figure out the percent yield, you first need to figure out the theoretical yield. The theoretical yield is, if all the elements would have reacted how much product would have been produced. The percent yield then is \[\frac{ actual,yield }{ theoretical, yield }\] Step 1: Calculate theoretical yield Step 2: Divide actual yield by theoretical yield If you need help calculating the theoretical yield reply to this post or message me directly
