I'm having a problem with my chemistry lab report. the question is: What would the % yield of ester be if the reaction were simply allowed to equilibrate (i.e. no products are
removed)?
I think the the yield is going to smaller but i dont know why.
pls help

If the reaction mixture is allowed to reach the equilibrium, are all reactants converted to final products?

You think the yield will be smaller relative to what? Relative to Stopping the rxn early?
