In class today we did a lab with acetone (4M), iodine (.0050M), and HCl (1.0M). The lab was one kinetics and on determining the rate constant, rates, and orders. Which I've done fine, but I'm stuck on this question: Why is the concentration of I2 so much less then the other reactants?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Any help would be appreciated, and it's due tomorow =]

Btw

Rate=2.1 (Ms)^(-1) x 10^(-5) x (Acet) x (H+)

Second order reaction.

First order with respect to Acet and H+, zero order with respect to I2

Just to prove I've done the work =]
