Homework Help: chemistry

Posted by Anonymous on Monday, April 19, 2010 at 5:23pm.

A student weighed out 1.5g of salicylic acid into a flask and then added 4ml of acetic an hydride to react. He also added 5 drops of concentrated sulfuric acid. Density of acetic an hydride is 1.08g/ml and sulfuric acid is 1.85g/ml (sulfuric acid is a catalyst in this reaction). What is the limiting reagent in this reaction? and assuming the reaction went to completion how much product should be expected to be produced (theoretical yield)?
