Wt. of flask + Product 109.12g
Wt. of Flask 91.69g
wt. of product 17.43 g
Volume of water collected 4.60g
19.0 mL of n-propanol (0.25 mol)
18.5 mL of propionic acid (0.25 mol)
1. Calculate the volume of water expected if the yield of ester were 100%.
2.Calculate the % yield of ester.
3.What would the % yield of ester be if the reaction were simply allowed to equilibrate (i.e. no products are removed)?
