The gaseous hydrocarbon butane, C4H10, burns according to the following equation:
If the reaction in part c produces 130 g of CO2, what is the percent yield of CO2 for the reaction?
Express your answer with the appropriate units.
The percent yield of CO2 = ???
Percent yield = actual yield / theoretical yield * 100% Actual yield (CO2) = 130 g Theoretical yield (CO2) = 168.7 g Percent yield (CO2) = 130 g / 168,7 g * 100% = 77 %.
