    Ethanol and Ethanoic acid react to form Ethyl ethanoate and water according to the equation
    C2H5OH + CH3COOH = CH3COOC2H5+H2O
    When two moles each of ethanol and ethanoic acid are allowed to react at 100 degrees celcius in a sealed tube, equilibrium is established when two-thirds of a mole of each of the reactants remains. Calculate the equilibrium constant for this reaction.
