Acetic acid (CH3CO2H) reacts with isopentyl alcohol (C5H12O) to yield isopentyl acetate (C7H14O2), a fragrant substance with the odor of bananas. If the yield from the reaction of acetic acid with isopentyl alcohol is 45%, how many grams of isopentyl acetate are formed from 3.68 g of acetic acid and 4.66 g of isopentyl alcohol? The reaction is: CH3CO2H + C5H12O → C7H14O2 + H2O Express your answer using two significant figures.
