structural formulae

REACTION 1 IS A CARBON COMPOUND CONTAINING AN ALCOHOL FUNCTION GROUP + REACTION 2 IS A CARBON COMPOUND CONTAINING A CARBOXYLIC GROUP. IM TRYING TO UNDERSTAND THE PRODUCT FORMULAE. CAN YOU TELL ME HOW THESE TWO FUNCTION GROUPS REACT, AND THE RELEVANCY OF CH IN THIS EQUATION PLEASE. I DON'T NEED AN ANSWER TO A QUESTION, BUT I WOULD LIKE TO BE ABLE TO UNDERSTAND THE QUESTION, MANY THANKS

You need to do some memorizing: Understanding will come later.

carboxylic acids Plus alcohols yield esters and water.
