What might be a reason you obtained a percent yield of less than/greater than 100% for the mixture  


Expert Answer

Step 1

The formula used to calculate the percent yield is,

If the obtained percentage yield is less than 100, it shows that the obtained yield is less than the expected.


This takes place when the product is lost whilst drying or weighing.

If the reaction ...
