FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to calculate the rate of appearance of I2(aq) if the rate of disappearance of I(aq) at a particular time and concentration is 2.6 × 10–3 mol/(L · s).

Recall that the average rate of a reaction is given by:

Rate=[A]time

where:
Δ[A] = change in concentration of reactants or products (in mol/L or M) 
Δtime = change in time
