Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Lena on Tuesday, November 16, 2010 at 3:16pm.

A student did the Synthesis of Salicylic Acid experiment starting with 3.89 g of methyl salicylate (C8H8O3) and using 40 mL of 6.0 M NaOH. To evaluate her success she needs to determine the limiting reagent. The reaction goes as follows:
C8H8O3 + H2O ==> C7H6O3 + CH3OH.
Assuming the solution of NaOH is mostly water, she uses the volume of NaOH = volume of H2O. Also she assumes that the density of water is 1.000 g/mL. Which is the limiting reagent methyl salicylate or water?
How many moles of salicylic acid can be produced if methyl salicylate is limiting?

How many moles of salicylic acid can be produced if water is limiting?

Which is the limiting reagent: methyl salicylate or water
