Wine goes bad soon after opening because the ethanol
Last updated: 7/26/2022
Wine goes bad soon after opening because the ethanol (CH₂CH₂OH) dissolved in it reacts with oxygen (O₂) gas to form water and aqueous acetic acid (CH3COOH), the main ingredient in vinegar. Calculate the moles of acetic acid produced by the reaction of 0.10 mol of ethanol. Be sure your answer has a unit symbol, if necessary, and round it to the correct number of significant digits.
