What is the theoretical yield of aspirin?

Answer

You need to find the whole reaction as in the coefficients in a reaction equation, and then you take the grams of your reactant (in this case either salicyclic acid or the acetic anhydride) and divide the weight by the MW. so 4.1/148 and 2.8/102.

First, balance the equation so there is an equal number of atoms on either side. Next, calculate the molecular weight and product by adding up the masses. Divide the mass of the reactant
