Aspirin (C9H8O4) is produced from salicylic acid (C7H6O3), and acetic anhydride (C4H6O3), as shown below.

C7H6O3 + C4H6O3 → C9H8O4 + HC2H3O2

(a) How much salicylic acid is required to produce 1.0  102 kg of aspirin, assuming that all of the salicylic acid is converted to aspirin?

(b) How much salicylic acid would be required if only 56% of the salicylic acid is converted to aspirin?

(c) What is the theoretical yield of aspirin if 181 kg of salicylic acid is allowed to react with 124 kg of acetic anhydride?
