Problem: Consider the reaction 5Br-(aq) + BrO3-(aq) + 6H+(aq) → 3Br2(aq) + 3H2O(l) The average rate of consumption of BrO3- is 1.86x10-4 M/s over the first two minutes. What is the average rate of formation of Br2 during the same time interval? Express your answer with the appropriate units.  What is the average rate of consumption of H+ during the same time interval? Express your answer with the appropriate units.

🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Zhang's class at USF.
