Determine the theoretical yield of aspirin for a student who started the experiment with 3.489g of salicylic asid

asked by Kylie
  1. mols SA = grams SA/molar mass SA

    The mols SA = mols ASA since the ratiio is 1:1 in the equatin.

    Then grams ASA = mols ASA x molar mass ASA
    SA = salycilic acid
    ASA = aspirin.
