Explanation:
In an esterification reaction, the Bronsted acid protonates the carbonyl group present in the carboxylic acid. It makes the carbonyl carbon more electrophilic. The alcohol attacks the electrophilic carbon to form a neutral intermediate. This intermediate is tautomerized and is followed by the removal of water to give a protonated ester which is deprotonated by a weak neutral base to form ester as the final organic product.
