The proportion of product you actually got over the theoretical maximum.

When you say maximum amount possible do you mean theoretical yield or 100%?

Theoretical yield I believe. What would 100% even be if not this? So for Haber process, you'd do the moles calculation for 'expected yield' and then be surprised that you only got 40% of this. Then realise that it's a dynamic equilibrium and shoot yourself.

NP. If you ever run into dynamic equillibria in real life, apparently in the USA you can buy handguns.
