which starting material is the limiting reagent in this procedure? which reagent is used in excess?How great is the molar excess(how many times greater)?
With no equation....
The equation is: Acetic acid + Isopentyl alcohol ---> Isopentyl acetate.
Of course there is a mundane acid catalyst. How great is the molar excess knowing that acetic acid is in excess and isopentyl alcohol is limited?
