Please Help with the following
CH3COOH(l) + SOCl2(l) ⇌ CH3COCl(l) + SO2(g) + HCl(g)
a. Use Le Chatlier’s principle to determine which reaction vessel would yield more product: a 100 mL
sealed and evacuated flask, or a 500 mL sealed and evacuated flask (assume the liquids only take
up about 50 mL of volume).
b. Which compound (CH3COOH or CH3COCl) has a higher boiling point, and why?
