The reaction between ethyl bromide (C2H5Br) and hydroxide ion in ethyl alcohol at 330 K, C2H5Br(alc) + OH^-(alc) → C2H5OH(I) + Br^-(alc), is first order each in ethyl bromide and hydrogen ion. When [C2H5Br] is 0.0477 M and [OH^-] is 0.100 M, the rate of disappearance of ethyl bromide is 1.7 x 10^-7 M/s. What is the value of the rate constant? Express your answer using two significant figures.
