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.

Y_a = Y_p / 100 * Y_t

- Where Y
_{a}us the actual yield - Y
_{p}is the percentage yield (%) - Y
_{t}is the theoretical yield

To calculate the actual yield, divide the percentage yield by 100, then multiply by 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.

## FAQ

**What is an actual yield?**

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.

**What is a theoretical yield?**

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.
