04.08 Percent Yield: Percent Yield Lab Report 1

The next day I will introduce the Percent Yield lab and ask ..
The reaction above shows what happens when copper metal is dissolved in nitric acid. How many moles of nitrogen monoxide gas () are made when 2.00 mol copper () are placed in a solution containing 5.00 mol nitric acid ()? In order to answer the question, we have to know which chemical is the limiting reactant. In the balanced chemical equation for the reaction there is an 8:3 ratio for nitric acid to copper metal. The given amounts in the question have a 5:2 ratio. See below:

 

Mass/Mass Stoichiometry and Percent Yield


Secondly, chemical reactions may be subject to the condition of equilibrium. It may be that the most stable mixture of reactants and products is not one in which the reactants are used up completely to make products. Many chemical reactions are reversible: products can react to make the reactants again. When the equilibrium point is reached the reaction continues at the molecular level but appears to stop based on simple observation. Reactant molecules continue to become product molecules but they do so at the same rate that product molecules react to become reactant molecules. Equilibrium is an advanced topic in chemistry and is beyond the scope of this text. Nevertheless, it is an important contributor to the situation in which the theoretical yield of products is not achieved in experiment.


In Example 1 the amount of nitrogen monoxide formed was 1.25 mol. This was the theoretical yield for that problem because it was calculated using the limiting reactant. If the experiment were performed in a lab and the actual number of moles of was found to be 1.00 mol then what was the percent yield?


The Stoichiometry of Product Formation and Percent Yield

3. To solve for percent yield, you must have the theoretical yield (which is obtained from a stoichiometric calculation) and the actual yield (which may be given or obtained from experimental data). If the theoretical yield is given, move on to step 4. If the theoretical yield is not given, follow steps 3-5 above for mass-mass problem solving.

In this section, we learn about mass to mass stoichiometry problems and percent yield. The following video is approximately 28 minutes long. While viewing the video, take notes about important concepts presented. Pause the video if necessary to write down observations. Be sure to answer the video quiz questions at the end of the video. A note taking guide is available in the sidebar.

Moles and Percents Why do we need Moles

In Example 2 the theoretical yield of was 1.10 g. Say the experiment were carried out in a lab and the amount of was found to be only 0.78 g. In that case the percent yield is calculated as seen below:

Percent plans in Texas and elsewhere have sparked considerable controversy. Some critics allege that they force the most-selective public colleges to admit underprepared students from low-performing schools and to deny admission to better-prepared students; others complain that they don’t do enough to promote diversity. After the Supreme Court upheld some forms of race-conscious affirmative action in 2003, UT-Austin quickly reinstated racial preferences in admissions, triggering a challenge that led to the Supreme Court’s most recent affirmative-action case. In Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin, the Supreme Court in 2013 directed a lower court to consider whether the school’s use of racial preferences is essential to yield sufficient diversity in its student body. The key question the court must address: whether race-neutral methods, such as TTP, could accomplish the same goal. Often lost in the debate over these policies is a more basic question: do they benefit the students who receive automatic admissions? Given their academic accomplishments, many of the students who gain admission under a percent plan may have been admitted to selective universities in the absence of the plan. But the number of students admitted under such plans has increased over time in Texas, suggesting that the programs have in fact had a sizable effect on enrollments. Additionally, percent plans may not just affect whether students apply to and attend college, but where they apply and matriculate. In this study, we examine the effect of being eligible for automatic admission under the Texas Ten Percent Plan. We compare students in a large urban school district who just made it into their high-school’s top 10 percent to students who just missed the cutoff. We find that eligibility for automatic admissions under the TTP Plan increases the likelihood that students enroll at a flagship Texas university by at least 60 percent. This increase in flagship enrollment displaces enrollment in private universities, however, and therefore has no effect on overall college enrollment or on the quality of college attended. The effects on flagship enrollment are only observed in high schools that send many of their graduates to college, suggesting that automatic admission may have little effect on the college choices of students in the state’s most-disadvantaged schools. The Texas Plan
