Enter the percentage yield and theoretical yield into the calculator to determine the actual yield.
Actual Yield Formula
The following is the formula for calculating the actual yield of a process.
Ya = Yp / 100 * Yt
- Where Ya us the actual yield
- Yp is the percentage yield (%)
- Yt is the theoretical yield
Actual Yield Definition
An actual yield is the true amount of substance yielded from an experiment.
Actual Yield Example
How to calculate actual yield?
- First, determine the theoretical yield.
Calculate the theoretical yield of the process.
- Next, determine the percentage yield.
Calculate the total percentage of the theoretical yield that was produced.
- Finally, calculate the actual yield.
Calculate the actual yield using the formula above.
An actual yield is the exact yield of a substance generated from a chemical process. Since no process is perfect it’s always a percentage of the theoretical yield that the process should generate.
A theoretical yield is the exact amount of a substance that should be produced through a given reaction if it was performed perfectly with no losses.
