If, in the reaction below, 4 grams of H2O produces 0.67 grams of HF what is the % yield?

CH3COF + H2O ---> CH3COOH + HF


Expert Answer

Step 1

The percentage of the ratio of the amount of product produced to the amount of product experimentally expected is known as percentage yield. The formula used to calculate the percentage yield is shown below.
