A 3.5 g aspirin sample is 75% pure. The sample is recrystallized in water/ethanol mixture that has a solubility of 20.0 g/100 mL in hot solvent and 5.6 g/ 100 mL in ice cold solvent. Assume the main impurity has the solubility of 20.0 g/ 100 mL in hot solvent and 15.0 g/ 100 mL in ice cold solvent. Assume that the main impurity is the only impurity.
