###### Problem Details

Part A: What is the theoretical yield of ethyl chloride in the reaction of 19.6 g of ethylene with 50 g of hydrogen chloride? (For ethylene, MW = 28.0 amu; for hydrogen chloride, MW = 36.5 amu; for ethyl chloride, MW = 64.5 amu.)

H2C=CH2 + HCl → CH3CH2Cl

Part B: What is the percent yield if 27.5 g of ethyl chloride is actually formed?
