###### Problem Details

Consider the general chemical equation: 2A + B → 3C. Assume that you start with 100.0 g of substance A and you eventually isolate 500g of substance C. If you know that the molar mass of A is 20 g mol^{-1} and the molar mass of C is 72 g mol ^{-1}, find the actual yield, the theoretical yield and the % yield of the reaction that is represented by the above general chemical equation.
