    In my notes as an example of alkaline hydrolysis we have ethylethanoate + sodium hydroxide ---> sodium ethanoate + ethanol. It then says that if we wanted to obtain the carboxylic acid from the sodium salt we would add a strong acid ..what would the equation be for this ? E.g. sodium ethanoate + hcl would we get ethanoic acid and sodium chloride as our products ? Thanks will give rep
