Ethanol is produced industrially by the acid catalyzed reaction of ethylene with water. The balanced equation for
this reaction is:
C 2H 4(g) + H 2O (g) ® C 2H 5OH (l)
If water is present in excess, how many grams of ethanol can be produced from 7.24 moles of ethylene?
a. 334 g
b. 203 g
c. 14.5 g
d. 7.24 g
