Ethyl acetate is hydrolysed in an acidic solution, following a law of speed of the first order in equal amounts of ethanol and acetic acid. Based on the calculation of the acetic acid formed, one can draw conclusions on the concentration of the ester in time. The reaction speed for this reaction is calculated at different temperatures and the activation energy is calculated.
