Many computer chips are manufactured from silicon, which occurs
in nature as SiO2. When SiO2 is heated to melting, it reacts
with solid carbon to form liquid silicon and carbon monoxide
gas. In an industrial preparation of silicon, 155.8 kg of SiO2 reacts
with 78.3 kg of carbon to produce 66.1 kg of silicon. Determine
the percent yield for the reaction.
