The text explains that one reason why the actual yield for a reaction may be less than the theoretical yield is side reactions. Suggest some other reasons why the percent yield for a reaction might not be 100%.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

To determines why the actual yield for a reaction may be less than the theoretical yield is side reactions suggest some other reasons why the percentage yield for a reaction might not be 100%.

Concept Introduction:

A balanced chemical equation is an equation that contains same number of atoms as well as of each element of reactants and products of reaction.

For example, the reaction between lead sulphide and oxygen is as follows:

2 PbS +  3 O22PbO +  2SO2  Reactants            Products

The limiting reactant in a particular reaction has due to following properties:

  1. Limiting reactant completely reacted in a particular reaction.
  2. Limiting reactant determines the amount of the product in mole.
Explanation

Theoretical yield is the amount of product which is theatrically calculates by the amount of limiting agent. It is the maximum amount of product which is formed in any reaction.

The actual yield for a reaction may be less than the theoretical yield is side reactions because of following reasons:
