Solution: In the “Méthode Champenoise,” grape juice is fermented in a wine bottle to produce sparkling wine. The reaction isC6H12O6(aq) → 2C2H5OH(aq) + 2CO2(g)Fermentation of 750. mL grape juice (density = 1.0 g/cm3) is allowed to take place in a bottle with a total volume of 825 mL until 12% by volume is ethanol (C2H5OH). Assuming that the CO2 is insoluble in H2O (actually, a wrong assumption), what would be the pressure of CO2 inside the wine bottle at 25°C? (The density of ethanol is 0.79 g/cm3.)

Problem

In the “Méthode Champenoise,” grape juice is fermented in a wine bottle to produce sparkling wine. The reaction is

C6H12O6(aq) → 2C2H5OH(aq) + 2CO2(g)

Fermentation of 750. mL grape juice (density = 1.0 g/cm3) is allowed to take place in a bottle with a total volume of 825 mL until 12% by volume is ethanol (C2H5OH). Assuming that the CO2 is insoluble in H2O (actually, a wrong assumption), what would be the pressure of CO2 inside the wine bottle at 25°C? (The density of ethanol is 0.79 g/cm3.)
