Chemistry? Lab? FOOD!!!!

We are learning about theoretical yield and actual yield. We are using those yield to calculate the percentage yield. To elaborate and to get a better understanding of what it means and what the scientists are using those for, our generous chemistry’s teacher decided to have a SMORE LAB!! 

In order to make s’more we need, crackers, chocolate and of course marshmallows. 

To find the percentage yield, we need to take the actual yield divided by theoretical yield and time it by 100. 

  1. Calculate the theoretical yield by measure the weight all of the substance that you use to make smore
  2. Roast your marshmallows and chocolate on the Bunsen burner
  3. Make your smore by putting the marshmallows and the chocolate between the crackers
  4. Weigh your final product
  5. Find the percentage yield
