    I'm sooo stuck on this, I just don't know where to start

    Ok so the reaction is
    CH3COOH + C2H5OH -> CH3COOC2H5 + H2O (using HCl as a catalyst)

    I have 4 mixtures with different starting volumes of each component in. These were left to reach equilibrium and then titrated using NaOH.

    I now have no clue as to where to start in determining the equilibrium constant, so any help would be great.

    Thanks,

    lol what is the equation for the equilibrium constant - i cant remember, but you should have all the vbariables to go into it - ie, molarity, concentration etc.... cant really help any further than that!! dont know any more

    Kc = [CH3COOC2H5][H2O] / [CH3COOH][C2H5OH]

    you need the concentrations of them all.

    I think I'll have to ask my teacher, even though she's the scariest thing alive :eek:

    I know the formula and things but I can't work out how to work out the concentrations of the components at the start and at equilibrium etc. Never mind, I'll leave it for tonight

    Thanks,
