Problem

The release of volatile organic compounds into the atmosphere is regulated to limit ozone formation. In a laboratory simulation, 5% of the ethanol in a liquid detergent is released. Thus, a “down-the-drain” factor of 0.05 is used to estimate ethanol emissions from the detergent. The kH values for ethanol and 2-butoxyethanol (C4H9OCH2CH2OH) are 5×10−6 atm·m3 /mol and 1.6×10−6 atm·m3 /mol, respectively.

(a) Estimate a “down-the-drain” factor for 2-butoxyethanol in the detergent.
