Unformatted text preview: H 6 O 3 ) and acetic anhydride (C 4 H 6 O 3 ): C 7 H 6 O 3 + C 4 H 6 O 3 C 9 H 8 O 4 + C 2 H 4 O 2 (a) How much salicylic acid is required to produce 150 kg of aspirin, assuming that all of the salicylic acid is converted to aspirin? (b) How much salicylic acid would be required if only 80% of the salicylic acid is converted to aspirin? (c) What is the theoretical yield of aspirin if 185 kg of salicylic acid is allowed to react with 125 kg of acetic anhydride? (d) If the situation described in part (c) produces 182 kg of aspirin, what is the percentage yield? (e) Draw the molecular structures for the two products, C 9 H 8 O 4 and C 2 H 4 O 2 ....
