What is the yield for a reaction?

The yield of a chemical reaction is the amount of product that is produced (an example might be two grams). It is often of greater interest to consider the percent yield, which describes the amount of product formed relative to the maximum amount of product one could have expected based on the quantities of reactants used. The percent yield provides a measure of how efficient a process is for producing the target product.
