Homework Help: Chemistry (Stoichiometry help!)

  1. Jun 2, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    What is the % yield of 0.112g S02 obtained from the combination of 0.0781g of CS2 according to the reaction CS2 + 3O2 --> CO2 + 2SO2

    2. Relevant equations
    I believe it's Actual yield / Theoretical yield x 100% ?

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Not sure would 0.112g go under the AY? I don't now even know where to start.

    Looks like you know what you're doing. The equation's right and the actual yield is .112 g SO2. How do you find the theoretical yield?
