Calculate the molar mass of sucrose. How many mol sucrose did you start with in this lab? How many mol ethanol would you obtain if all the sucrose is converted?
I used 25g sucrose in 150 ml.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 9, 2019, 7:31 pm ad1c9bdddf
Molecular weight =12*12+22+11*16 = 342 (g/mol)
Number of mol of sucrose = 25/342 ...
The solution provides detailed explanations for the problem. The expert calculates the molar mass of sucrose. How many moles of ethanol which would obtain the sucrose is converted is determined.
