Calculate theoretical yield and percent yield in the following question. For the reaction CuSO4 +2Na -> Na2SO4 + Cu calculate mass of Na2SO4 if 12 g of sodium is mixed with 57g CuSO4. Identify a Limiting Reagent


Expert Answer

Step 1

In chemistry, there are many ways to check the deviation of experimental data from the accurate value. These different methods provide the difference between accuracy and precisions of the experimental data which can be further used to calculate the error percentage in the experiment.

Step 2

The balance reaction equation is:

CuSO42 Na
Na2SO Cu
