Every mole of Carbon contains 12.01 grams . There are #6.022xx10^23# atoms of Carbon in every mole. For this problem, every molecule of Methyl salicylate contains 7 atoms of Carbon ...

Explanation:

If there are #3.70xx10^23# molecules, then the total number of Carbon atoms is ...

#(3.70xx10^23) xx7 = 25.9xx10^23# Carbon atoms

Grams of Carbon #= (25.9xx10^23 "atoms")/(6.022xx10^23 "atoms / mole")xx12.01 ("grams")/("mole")=51.7# grams
