The chemical reaction of 100 g of salicylic acid, C7H6O3, with excess acetic anhydride produces 50.0 g of aspirin, C9H8O4, according to the equation. What is the percentage yield for the reaction shown below? Please show your work.

Same process + a little more from the NaN3 problem above.
Find mols aspirin produced by 100 g salicylic acid, convert to grams aspirin, and that is the theoretical yield. Then % yield = (actual yield/theoretical yield)*100 = ?
