Problem 48SP

When ethyl bromide is added to potassium tert-butoxide, the product is ethyl tert-butyl ether.

(a) What happens to the reaction rate if the concentration of ethyl bromide is doubled?

(b) What happens to the rate if the concentration of potassium tert-butoxide is tripled and the concentration of ethyl bromide is doubled?

(c) What happens to the rate if the temperature is raised?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 48SP :

Step 1:

Given reaction :

When ethyl bromide is added to potassium tert-butoxide, the product is ethyl tert-butyl ether.

Step 2:

(a) What happens to the reaction rate if the concentration of ethyl bromide is doubled?

The reaction is of second order and it is SN2 mechanism. Here the reaction rate doubles. The rate equation can be given as : rate = k[EtBr][KO-t-Bu]
