Complete the following reactions. CH3CH2Br + KCN →?

Whenever alkyl bromides, in the form if R-X, where R is the alkyl group and X is the halogen group, react in presence of KCN (potassium cyanide), then alkyl cyanides R-CN are produced as the main product and potassium halide, K-X is produced as the by-product.

CH3CH2Br + KCN → CH3CH2CN + KBr

Ethyl cyanide (CH3CH2CN) is the main product.
