3. Calculate the amount of isopentyl acetate that should be present in the reaction mixture at equilibrium based on 300 mmol of acetic acid and 150 mmol of isopentyl alcohol as starting quantities. Use equilibrium constant of 4.2 for this calculation. Moles can be used in place of concentration as volumes cancel out.
