C2H5OH + conc. H2SO4 -- 443K/dehydration---> CH2=CH2 + H2O
Mark it asanswer
5 to 8 percent acetic acid
3) when ethanol is heated with h2so4 ethene is obtained
2) when ethane is passed over copper ethanol is obtained
Ch3-ch3 Cu ---> ch3ch2oh
Carboxylic acids are organic compounds with a general chemical formula of RCOOH. The R is a side group made of carbon, hydrogen, and other atoms, and -COOH is a carboxyl group. They are polar substances and tend to have higher boiling points than water.

The compound formed is ethene.
When Ethanol is heated with excess of concentrated H2SO4 at 443 K (170° C), it gets dehydrated to form Ethene and water.
Chemical equation -
C2H5OH --Dehydration--> C2H4 + H2O
Here, concentrated sulphuric acid acts as an dehydrating agent.Additional information :-
