Problem 3.159

Ethanol (CH3CH2OH), the intoxicant in alcoholic beverages, is also used to make other organic compounds. In concentrated sulfuric acid, ethanol forms diethyl ether and water: 2CH3CH2OH(l) CH3CH2OCH2CH3(l) H2O(g) In a side reaction, some ethanol forms ethylene and water: CH3CH2OH(l) CH2 CH2(g) H2O(g) (a) If 50.0 g of ethanol yields 35.9 g of diethyl ether, what is the percent yield of diethyl ether? (b) During the process, 45.0% of the ethanol that did not produce diethyl ether reacts by the side reaction. What mass of ethylene is produced?
