# Is there any condition where alcohol oxidizes in presence of chromium trioxide to give carboxylic acid [duplicate]

My text book says that alcohol in presence of $$\ce{CrO3}$$ will only give aldehyde. But I then saw this question in which $$\ce{CrO3}$$ oxidizes alcohol directly to carboxylic acid.

I need to know in which conditions it will give aldehyde and in which conditions it will give carboxylic acid.
