Answer to Question #85155 in General Chemistry for Annie

Question #85155
Aspirin, C9H8O4, is produced from salicylic acid, C7H6O3, and acetic anhydride, C4H6O3, as shown below.
C7H6O3 + C4H6O3 C9H8O4 + HC2H3O2
How much salicylic acid is required to produce 2.4 102 kg of aspirin, assuming that all of the salicylic acid is converted to aspirin?
How much salicylic acid would be required if only 67% of the salicylic acid is converted to aspirin?
What is the theoretical yield of aspirin if 181 kg of salicylic acid is allowed to react with 153 kg of acetic anhydride?
If the situation described in part (c) produces 159 kg of aspirin, what is the percentage yield?
