What is the maximum amount of ethanol (in grams) that can be produced when 1.0 kg of ethylene (C2H4) and 0.014 kg of steam are placed into the reaction vessel?
Ethanol (C2H5OH) is synthesized for industrial use by the following reaction, carried out at very high pressure.
C2H4(g) + H2O(g) C2H5OH(l)
See your post above under Jack. I agree with Writeacher. It works much better for students and tutors if you stick to the same screen name. Students tell me they use different names because they fear we won't answer too many questions from the same student. That isn't true. We try to answer all questions, especially when the student makes a stab at answering.
