Answer to Question #22091 in Inorganic Chemistry for khadijah
a.) What is the theoretical yield of water?
b.) What is the percentage yield?
2H2 + O2 = 2H2O;
Having a mass of hydrogen we can find the quantity substance
n(H2) = m(H2)/M(H2);
M(H2) = 1 *2 = 2 g/mol
n(H2) = 9 g / 2 g/mol = 4.5 moles;
The amount of substance of hydrogen with the amount of substance of water as
a 2 to 2 or 1 to 1.
so n(H2O) = 4.5 moles
Theoretical mass of water will be
n(H2O) = m(H2O)/M(H2O);
M(H2O) = 1 *2 + 16 = 18 g/mol
m (H2O) 4.5 moles * 18 g/mol = 81 g.
so the theoretical yield of water is 81 g.
The percentage yield will be
m(H2O)practical / m(H2O)theoretical = 73.0 g / 81.0 g = 0.9012 or 90.12 %
