    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.

    Learning Objectives

    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.

    LEARNING ACTIVITIES

    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.
