Balanced Reaction: O3(g) + 2 NaI(aq) + H2O(l) → O2(g) + I2(s) + 2 NaOH(aq)
A method used by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for determining the concentration of ozone in air is to pass the air sample through a "bubbler" containing sodium iodide, which removes the ozone according to the following equation: O3(g) + 2 NaI(aq) + H2O(l) → O2(g) + I2(s) + 2 NaOH(aq)
How many moles of sodium iodide are needed to remove 5.55×10−6 mol O3?
