1. In the introduction to this experiment, it states that you reacted 2.5 grams of salicylic acid with an excess of acetic anhydride, meaning that there would be a higher number of moles of acetic anhydride then salicylic acid, proportionally. Assuming the density of acetic anhydride is 1.082 g/ml, and the molecular formula is C4H6O3, show how this is true.
