Question

The reaction between benzoic acid (C6H5COOH) and octanol (C8H17OH) to yield octyl benzoate (C6H5COOC8H17) and water

C6H5COOH + C8H17OH ----> C6H5COOC8H17 + H2O

is carried out with an excess of C8H17OH to help drive the reaction to completion and maximize the yield of product. If an organic chemist wants to use 1.5 molar equivalents of C8H17OH, how many grams of C8H17OH would be required to carry out the reaction with 15.7 g of C6H5COOH?
