Hi everyone,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For a science lab, I am asked to find the following:

What factor(s) affect percent yield in a reaction which produces calcium carbonate?

We are given a selection of chemicals to use to get the [tex]CaCl_2[/tex] but I have chosen the following:

[tex]CaCl_2 + Na_2CO_3 --> CaCO_3 + 2NaCl[/tex]

We are to do at least 4 trials of changing the grams of [tex]Na_2CO_3 [/tex].

I'm not sure what are the factors that affect % yeild. Would is be Molarity?

Any help would be appreciated,

Chris.
