Hey, can anybody help me with this question:

CH3COOH+C2H5OH=CH3COOC2H5+H20

If the starting mass of ethonol is 23g, calculate the expected mass of ethyl ethanote (assume that excess ethanoic acid is used).

Help would be appreciated.

This is a bit tricky because it is an equilibrium. Please let me know what level you are at (GCSE / AS / A2) so that I can answer in the right sort of language.

I will then reply as soon as possible.
