Solution: Ethyl acetate is synthesized in a nonreacting solvent (not water) according to the following reaction:CH3CO2H + C2H5OH ⇌ CH3CO2C2H5 + H2O                K = 2.2Acetic acid    Ethanol      Ethyl acetateFor the following mixtures, will the concentration of H 2O increase, decrease, or remain the same as equilibrium is established?a. [CH3CO2C2H5] = 0.22 M, [H2O] = 0.10 M, [CH3CO2H] = 0.010 M, [C2H5OH] = 0.010 M

Problem

Ethyl acetate is synthesized in a nonreacting solvent (not water) according to the following reaction:

CH3CO2H + C2H5OH ⇌ CH3CO2C2H5 + H2O                K = 2.2
Acetic acid    Ethanol      Ethyl acetate

For the following mixtures, will the concentration of H 2O increase, decrease, or remain the same as equilibrium is established?

a. [CH3CO2C2H5] = 0.22 M, [H2O] = 0.10 M, [CH3CO2H] = 0.010 M, [C2H5OH] = 0.010 M
