i have had enough,and got no hair left,i need to find the structural formula for ill try my best to explain
CH2=CH-CH-OH WITH A CH3 UNDER THE SECOND CH.+CH3-CH-C WITH A CH3 UNDER THE FIRST CH ,A DOUBLE BOND FROM THE C TO O AND A SINGLE BOND TO OH UNDER THE C,i need to find the structural formula for the product,i think there is a + H2O ,and the first is an alcohol and the second is a carboxylic acid,
i know u cant draw formula on line but please try to help im very lost

An organic acid (the R-COOH compound) reacts with an organic alcohol (the R'OH) to form an ester with the elimination of H2O as the other product. Take the OH from the RCOOH, the H from the R'OH, and combine the two compounds together at that point. You will have a RCOOR' with RC=O and the OR' coming off the C also.
I hope this helps.
