    Ca + Cl2 → CaCl2

    1.0mol of Ca and 1.00 mol of Cl2 were present as reactants.

    Only 106 g of CaCl2 is produced.

    What is the percent yield?

    Ca + Cl2 → CaCl2

    This balanced equation states that 1 mole of Ca will react with 1 mole of Cl2 to produce 1 mole of CaCl2.

    1 mole of Ca = 40.1 grams

    1 mole of Cl2 = 2 * 35.5 = 71.0 grams of Cl2

    So, 40.1 + 71.0 = 111.1 grams of CaCl2 should have been produced!!

    Since only 106 grams of CaCl2 was produced, the percent yield =

    % yield = (106 ÷ 111.1) * 100 = 95.41%
