1. 1.87 g of acetic acid (vinegar, C2H4O2) reacts with 2.13 g of isopentyl alcohol (C5H12O) to yield isopentyl acetate (C7H14O2), a fragrant substance with the odor of bananas. The reaction is: C2H4O2 + C5H12O ¾® C7H14O2 + H2O
a) Which is the limiting reactant (LR) and excess reactant (ER)?
b) How many grams of isopentyl acetate were formed?
c) How many grams of the excess reactant is left after the reaction is complete?
d) If 2.96 g of isopentyl acetate was produced, what is the % yield of the reaction?
a) Limiting reactant (LR) =
Excess reactant (ER)=
b) Grams of isopentyl acetate formed=3.419g
c)Grams of the excess reactant=2.82g
d)Percent Yield =82.46%
