Calculate the theoretical yield of aspirin to be obtained in experiment, 2.0 grams of salicylic acid and 5.0 mL of acetic anhydride (density = 1.08g/mL).Molecular mass salicylic acid = 138.118 g/molMolecular mass acetic anhydride = 102.09 g/mol-------------------------------------------------------------I got 0.05289 moles of acetic anhydride0.01448 moles of salicylic acidBalanced equation:C7H6O3 + C4H6O3 <---> C9H8O4 + C2H4O2mole ratio is one to oneLimiting reaction is salicylic acid since it has less molesSo for one mole of salicylic acid used one mole of aspirin is used too. So there are 0.01448 moles of aspirin?Molecular mass of aspirin = 180.157 g/mol(180.157 g/mol) (0.01448 mol) = 2.608g of aspirinIs this correct? Thank You.2.608g is the theoretical yield of aspirin
