WHAT YOU’LL LEARN TO DO: Analyze data to determine the limiting reactant in an experiment and understand the concept of theoretical and percent yields.
By the end of this section, you will be able to:
- Use stoichiometry to determine the limiting reactant.
- Calculate the theoretical yield.
- Calculate the percent yield of a reaction.
The learning activities for this section include:
|Assignment||Approximate Time to Complete||Due Date|
|Read Introduction||5 minutes||Before Lab|
Complete the Prelab Problems
(Make sure you get this signed before you leave lab!)
|15 minutes||Before Lab|
|Complete Prelab Quiz
Material will come from the lab introduction, safety, procedure, and the prelab questions.
|10 minutes||Before Lab|
|Complete Lab Handout||Varies||Due at the Next Lab Meeting|
*All students are expected to participate in the completion of the prelab assignment regardless of whether the assignment is an individual or group assignment.
*Prelab quizzes must be completed prior to coming to lab for a student to be admitted to class.
