student did the Synthesis of Salicylic Acid experiment using 3.93 g of methyl salicylate. This was the limiting reagent for his experiment. What is the theoretical yield of salicylic acid for his experiment?
The theoretical yield is:

  • Chemistry -

    You should have included this with your first post. The theoretical yield is the amount of SA produced with the limiting reagent.
