(the answers are at the top - see link)
Could someone please help me with the question (about half way through) on ethyl ethanoate and sodium hydroxide.
in cii) we identified the half life doubles
ciii) we identified the order is second order
for part civ) we are asked is this the order for OH- ions or total order.
I would have said OH- order BUT the answer is total order.
Please could someone explain this (the mark schemes explanation is ester and NaOH are equimolar at the start - how is this relevant)
The Attempt at a Solution
I have shown my attempts above in the body of this question
