This lesson covers the topics of limiting reactants and percent yield. The lesson begins by asking students to compare a limiting reactant problem to one with excess reactants. Then the student learns a procedure for solving limiting reactant problems. Finally, the student is introduced to the concepts of actual yield, theoretical yield, and percent yield.
This lesson is appropriate for AP Chemistry or Honors Introductory Chemistry.
Detailed answer keys are included.
The topics covered include:
-Identifying Limiting Reactant Problems
-Solving Limiting Reactant Problems
-Determining Amounts of Reactants Remaining
-Practice with Limiting Reactants
-Factors that Limit the Amount of Product Formed
-Calculating the Percent Yield
-Using the Percent Yield
