Atom economy assumes 100% percentage yield. They r related but only for looking at efficiency of a process/ reaction.

So atom economy= sum of molar mass of desired product/ sum of molar mass of all products

% yield= (actual yield/ theoretical yield) ×100

Percentage yield shows u how well a reaction has gone I.e. how much product was formed.

Atom economy shows u how useful the reaction actually is. U don't need to carry out an experiment for it whereas percentage yield u do.
