Determining Percentage Yield of a Chemical Reaction
AIM (RESEARCH QUESTION)
The aim of the experiment is determining the percentage yield of the product (copper), in the reaction of copper chloride with aluminum; and stating weather the reaction is an endothermic or exothermic; beside giving reasons about the outcomes, and defining the errors that affected the overall result.
The percentage yield is the outcome of the product's actual yield divided by the theoretical yield, and it generally shows the accuracy of the conducted experiment; and the percentage yield can be anything below 100% or higher, and it shows that the closer the percentage yield is to 100%, the more accurate is the experiment.
The aim of the experiment is to find out the actual yield of copper when an aluminum foil (8cm x 2cm) is placed on distilled water containing 2.00 grams of copper chloride (there is an uncertainty of 0.01 grams in copper chloride's mass due to the measuring equipment). The theoretical yield can be found by balancing the equation the following reaction's equation:
- The reactants are: copper chloride (CuCl2) and aluminum (Al); and the products of the reaction are: aluminum chloride
