1. If an aqueous solution ____ is added to a mixture of Ba^2+ and Fe^3+, the barium ion will precipitate, but the iron ion will remain in solution


answer is Na2SO4

but how and why did they get that answer, I don't understand. Can you please explain to me how they got the answer.

2. Aspirin (C9H8O4) is produced by the reaction of salicylic acid (M=138.1 g/mol) and acetic anhydride (M=102.1 g/mol)

C7H6O3 (s) + C4H6O3 (l)  ->  C9H8O4 (s) + C2H4O2 (l)

If you mix 2.00 g grams if each reactant, what mass of aspirin (M=180.2 g/mol) can theoretically be obtained?

a. 2.00 g
b. 2.61 g
c. 2.71 g
d. 3.53 g
e. 4.00 g

the answer is 2.61 g, can you please explain how to get this answer, what steps to take etc. I am very confused on how to solve this problem too.

1. Google solubility rules.

2. Basic stoichiometry & limiting reagent:
(basic assuming you know how to convert between masses and moles).
ChemBuddy chemical calculators - stoichiometry, pH, concentration, buffer preparation,,

Im pretty sure the first one has something to do with solubility rules.

For the second question, first work out the moles of the limiting reagent (i think thats the term i should be using). Then use the formula n=mass / molar mass. Using the value u get for n, sub it into the same formula again except this time using the molar mass of aspirin. This should give you a value of 2.61
