## Theoretical Weight Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Theoretical Weight.

**TW = W * Y/100**

Variables:

- TW is the Theoretical Weight (g)
- W is the total weight (g)
- Y is the theoretical yield (%)

## How to Calculate Theoretical Weight?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Theoretical Weight.

- First, determine the total weight (g).
- Next, determine the theoretical yield (%).
- Next, gather the formula from above = TW = W * Y/100.
- Finally, calculate the Theoretical Weight.
- 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.

total weight (g) = 400

theoretical yield (%) = 20

TW = W * Y/100** **= ?
