    Ethanol and Ethanoic acid react to form Ethyl ethanoate and water according to the equation
    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.
