The answer is: more product for the dehydration of 2-pentanol are 1-pentene (CH₂=CH-CH₂-CH₂-CH₃) and 2-pentene (CH₃-CH=CH-CH₂-CH₃) and water.The addition of hot concentrated sulfuric acid to a secondary alkanol removes a water molecule from the organic molecule in a dehydration reaction.2-pentanol, CH₃-CH₂-CH₂-CHOH-CH₃ s an asymmetric secondary alcohol.
