Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by John on Monday, March 30, 2009 at 10:19pm.

A student carried out the synthesis of aspirin, starting with 3.22 g of salicylic acid. After carrying out the reaction, recrystallizing and then drying the product, the student obtained 3.65 g of aspirin. Calculate the percent yield.

I'm pretty sure it's (3.65 g / 3.22 g)*100 = 113.35%.

Is that correct?

Also, could someone please explain what is meant by creating a flow diagram for this experiment?
