Chemistry: Molecular Iodine and Atomic Iodine

  1. Oct 31, 2016 #1
    So I just had a question about calculating moles atomic iodine when you have the moles of molecular iodine. In the chemical equation IO3-(aq) + I-(aq) + H+(aq) = I2(aq) + H2O(l)

    Would the moles of atomic iodine be equal to the moles of the molecular iodine? or would the moles of atomic iodine be twice as much as molecular iodine?

    Edit: Just realized the equation is unbalanced:
    IO3-(aq) + 5I-(aq) + 6H+(aq) = 3I2(aq) + 3H2O(l)

    What about

    I2 → 2I

    Does it answer your question?
