Problem: The hydrolysis of sucrose (C12H22O11) into glucose and fructose in acidic water has a rate constant of 1.8 x 10–4 s–1 at 25 oC. Assuming the reaction is first order in sucrose, determine the mass of sucrose that is hydrolyzed when 2.60 L of a 0.160 M sucrose solution is allowed to react for 200 min.
