Find the theoretical, percent yield & percent error of the reaction.
Zirconium oxalate K2Zr(C2O4)3(H2C2O4)•H2O was synthesized by mixing 7.369g of ZrOCl2•8H2O with 9.325g of H2C2O4•2H2O and an excess of KOH. After 2 months, 4.962g of crystaline zirconium oxlate was obtained, as well as aqueous KCl and water.
