Rate Law: Methanol and ethyl acetate react to form ester and glycerol.
What is the order of reaction with respect to methanol and ethyl acetate, and what is the overall order of reactions? Please explain how to find if the answer is order 1 for methanol and order 0 for ethyl acetate.

  1. You must have some data such as rate of reaction, concentration of reactants, etc. Without that we're in the dark.

  2. You can always go to the web and Google that reaction. That will likely tell you the order of each and the overall order; however, it is not likely to tell you how those results were obtained. You might try a search such as "calculation of order for methanol and ethyl acetate using concentration data"
    Good luck.
