Write the Concentration Ratio (Reaction Quotient), Qc, for this Reaction (Note: Water is Not in Excess and is Not a Solvent in this Reaction) - Chemistry

Ethyl acetate is formed by the reaction between ethanol and acetic acid and the equilibrium is represented as:

CH3COOH (l) + C2H5OH (l) ⇌CH3COOC2H5 (l) + H2O (l)

Write the concentration ratio (reaction quotient), Qc, for this reaction (note: water is not in excess and is not a solvent in this reaction)

Solution 1

Reaction quotient, `Q_C = ([CH_3COOC_2H_5][H_2O])/([CH_3COOH][C_2H_5OH])`

Solution 2

The concentration ratio (Concentration quotient) `Q_c` for the reaction  is

`Q_c = ([CH_3COOC_2H_5(l)][H_2O(l)])/([CH_3COOH(l)][C_2H_5OH(l)])`
