Q 2927391281.     Hydrolysis of methyl acetate in aqueous solution has been studied by titrating the liberated acetic acid against sodium hydroxide. The concentration of the ester at different times is given below.





t/min 0 30 60 90
`C//mol L^(-1)` 0.8500 0.8004 0.7538 0.7096

Show that it follows a pseudo first order reaction, as the concentration of water remains nearly constant `(55 mol L^(–1))`, during the course of the reaction. What is the value of `k′` in this equation? Rate `= k′ [CH_3COOCH_3][H_2O]`
