2. Find the limiting reagent

3. Find the theoretical yield

4. Find the actual yield

The percent yield = (actual yield/theoretical yield) x 100

We know that:

a. Actual yield for Zn is 9g

b. Theoretical yield for Zn is 12g

Let plug in the numbers :

(9g/12g) x 100 = 75%

**The percent yield is 75% **
