Souring of wine occurs when ethanol is converted to acetic acid by oxygen by the following reaction: C2H5OH + O2 CH3COOH + H2O. A 1.00 L bottle of wine, labeled as 8.5% (by volume) ethanol, is found to have a defective seal. Analysis of 1.00 mL showed that there were 0.0274 grams of acetic acid in that 1.00 mL. The density of ethanol is 0.816 g/mL and the density of water is 1.00 g/mL. a. What mass of oxygen must have leaked into the bottle? b. What is the percent yield for the conversion of ethanol to acetic acid if O2 is in excess?
