    0.10 moles of propan-1-ol and 0.20 moles of ethanoic acid was roasted together at 25.C

    C3H7OH(l) + CH3COOH(l) <--> CH3COOC3H7 (l) + H2O (l)

    At equilibrium the mixture contained 0.05 moles of propyl ethanote. The volume of the mixture was 1dm^3

    Calculate the equilibrium constant, Kc at 25C.

    Please help! I don't have notes for this because the teacher hasn't put it on the school intranet yet please help.

    Calculate the moles of each component at equilibrium using the fact that originally there were 0.00 mol of propyl ethanoate and at equilibrium the mixture contains 0.05 mol.

    All of the components react in a 1:1 ratio, so you should be able to use stoichiometry to get the equilibrium moles of each.

    The total volume = 1 litre, so the concentration of each component is the same as the moles.

    Now write out the equilibrium law expression with the equilibrium values ....

    Is this right?

    C3H7OH
    initial-0.10
    reacted - 0.050
    equilbirum - 0.05

    CH3COOH
    initial-0.20
    reacted - 0.050
    equilbirum - 0.15

    CH3COOC3H7
    initial - 0.00
    equiblirum - 0.050

    H2O


    I'm stuck on what to put for H2O

    Calculate the equilibrium constant, Kc at 25C.

    (0.05)*(0.05)
    / (0.05) * (0.15)

    = 0.33

    Is that right?
    Someone suggested that it is 0.15

    Who is right?

    Yes, you've got the idea.

    Just apply the same logic to water ... 1 mole of water is produced for every 1 mol of reactant reacting ...

    If 0.05 mol of ester are produced then the same number of moles of water must be made.

    Equilibrium law is [products]/[reactants]

    ... and please don't make two threads on the same question!

    Sorry! So my answer is right then? It should be (0.05*0.05)?
