## Problem 4-16 In an experiment to prepare aspirin, the theoretical yield is 153.7 g. if the actual yield is 124.3 g, what is the percent yield?

Expert Solution
Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Percent yield of aspirin should be identified.

Concept Introduction:

Percent yield is the determination of total outcome of the reaction through which amount of product is produced from reactant. It can be determined as follows:

Percent yield = Actual yeild theoretical yield × 100.

### Explanation of Solution

Percent yield = Percent yield = Actual yeild theoretical yield × 100= Perc
