<u>**Answer:**</u>** The actual yield of the product is 38.57 g**

<u>**Explanation:**</u>

The **number of moles** is defined as the ratio of the mass of a substance to its molar mass. **The equation used is:**

......(1)

**We are given:**

Given mass of Na = 17.25 g

Molar mass of Na = 23 g/mol

**Putting values in equation 1, we get:**

**For the given chemical reaction:**

**By stoichiometry of the reaction:**

2 moles of Na produces 2 moles of NaCl

So, 0.75 moles of Na will produce = of NaCl

We know, molar mass of = 58.44 g/mol

**Putting values in above equation, we get:**

**The percent yield of a reaction is calculated by using an equation:**

......(1)

**Given values:**

Percent yield of the product = 88 %

Theoretical value of the product = 43.83 g

**Plugging values in equation 1:**

**Hence, the actual yield of the product is 38.57 g**
