Problem 4-13 In the industrial synthesis of acetic acid, methanol is reacted with carbon monoxide. How many moles of CO are required to produce 16.6 mol of acetic acid?

Chapter 4.7, Problem 4.13P, Problem 4-13 In the industrial synthesis of acetic acid, methanol is reacted with carbon monoxide.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Number of mol of carbon monoxide required to produce 16.6 mol acetic acid should be identified.

Concept Introduction:

Mole of a compound can be determined by dividing the mass of compound in g by its molar mass as follows:

n=m /M.

where, n is mol.

m is mass in g.

M is molar mass.

Explanation of Solution

1 mol of ethanol on reacting with carbon monoxide produces 1 mol acetic acid.

The balanced chemical equation is.

CH3OH (g) + CO (g)
