In the experiment of Synthesizing t-Butyl Chloride, if you were to obtain 12g of t-butyl chloride what would the yield of the reaction be?
Amount of alcohol in the experiment is 17mL (density 0.775g/mL-1)
Molecular weight of t-Butyl alcohol = 74.12g/mol Molecular weight of t-Butyl chloride = 92.57g/mol
I'm really confused on how to go about calculating this as the only thing I've learnt about calculating percentage yield is (experimental value/ theoretical value) x 100%.
Help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much!
