C2H5CO2H(l) + C3H7OH (l) —> C2H5COOC3H7(l) + H2O
When 18.5 mL of propanoic acidand 19.0 mL of n-propanol are mixed together, calculate the volumeof water expected if the yield of the ester were 100%
Boiling point of 1-propyl propanoate – 122 degrees C
Volume of water collected – 3.31 mL
Weight of product (C2H5COOC3H7)- 7.4846 g
One mole of propionic acid react with one mol of n-propanol gives one mole of ester and a mol of …
This solution calculates the expected yield of water if the yield of the ester were 100%. Brief justifications are provided for further understanding.
