Use the formula for **percent yield **to determine the percent yield from the actual and theoretical yield provided

Recall that ** percent yield** is given by:

$\overline{){\mathbf{\%}}{\mathbf{}}{\mathbf{yield}}{\mathbf{}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{}}\frac{\mathbf{actual}\mathbf{}\mathbf{yield}}{\mathbf{theoretical}\mathbf{}\mathbf{yield}}{\mathbf{\times}}{\mathbf{100}}}$

If the theoretical yield for a reaction was 180 grams and you actually made 118 grams of the product, what is your percent yield?

A. 78.2%

B. 122%

C. 128%

D. 65.6%

E. 180%
