Every mole of Carbon contains 12.01 grams . There are $6.022 \times {10}^{23}$ atoms of Carbon in every mole. For this problem, every molecule of Methyl salicylate contains 7 atoms of Carbon ...

#### Explanation:

If there are $3.70 \times {10}^{23}$ molecules, then the total number of Carbon atoms is ...

$\left(3.70 \times {10}^{23}\right) \times 7 = 25.9 \times {10}^{23}$ Carbon atoms

Grams of Carbon $= \left(25.9 \times {10}^{23} \text{atoms")/(6.022xx10^23 "atoms / mole")xx12.01 ("grams")/("mole}\right) = 51.7$ grams

Hope that helped
