Calculate the mass percentage of aspirin

Question:

Calculate the mass percentage of aspirin (C9H8O4) in acetonitrile (CH3CN) when 6.5 g of C9H8O4 is dissolved in 450 g of CH3CN.

Solution:

6.5 g of C9H8O4 is dissolved in 450 g of CH3CN.

Then, total mass of the solution = (6.5 + 450) g

= 456.5 g

Therefore, mass percentage of $\mathrm{C}_{9} \mathrm{H}_{8} \mathrm{O}_{4}=\frac{6.5}{456.5} \times 100 \%$

= 1.424%
