Homework Help: Chem.

Acetic acid (CH3COOH) reacts with isopentyl alcohol (C5H12O) to form isopentyl acetate (C7H14O2), a fragrant substance with the odor of bananas.
CH3COOH + C5H12O -> C7H14O2 + H2O
If the yield for the reaction is 45%, how many grams of the product are formed when 3.58 g of acetic acid are reacted with 4.75 grams of isopentyl alcohol?

So millimoles of acetic acid= 59.6667
Millimoles of isopentyl alcohol= 53.9773

But I don't know what to do from here.
