- Write a chemical equation to show how ethanol can be converted into ethanoic acid.
- Describe the action of ethanoic acid on sodium carbonate solution.
- Complete the following reaction equation:
CH3COONa(s) + NaOH(s).
2. When sodium carbonate is added to ethanoic acid, brisk effervescence is observed. During the course of reaction, sodium acetate, water, and carbon dioxide are produced.
3.CH3COONa + NaOH → CH4 + Na2CO3
