1.95 g of H2 is allowed to react with 9.94 g of N 2, producing 1.56 g of NH 3. What is the theoretical yield in grams for this reaction under the given conditions? What is the percent yield for this reaction under the given conditions?
Determine the theoretical yield by identifying the limiting reagent between H2 and N2. Then calculate the percent yield using the provided mass of NH3.
Step 1. Write the balanced equation.
H2 + N2 → NH3
H2 + N2 → 2NH3
