The theoretical yield of a reaction is the amount of some product, usually given in mass units of grams, that you would expect to get if the reaction based on a stoichiometric calculation not actually "running" the reaction in the laboratory. The actual yield is just that,it is the actual amount of product, in grams you actually produced after really running the experiment in the lab.Actual yield data comes from experimentally determined results. You can not "calculate" it.
