Enter the extracted weight (g) and the original weight (g) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Extraction Yield.

## Extraction Yield Formula

EY = EW / OW * 100

Variables:

- EY is the Extraction Yield (%)
- EW is the extracted weight (g)
- OW is the original weight (g)

To calculate Extraction Yield, divide the total extracted weight by the original material weight, then multiply by 100.

## How to Calculate Extraction Yield?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Extraction Yield.

- First, determine the extracted weight (g).
- Next, determine the original weight (g).
- Next, gather the formula from above = EY = EW / OW * 100.
- Finally, calculate the Extraction Yield.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

extracted weight (g) = 90

original weight (g) = 100
