We are being asked to determine the role of potassium iodide, KI, in the given reaction.
Consider the following reaction: 2H 2O2(aq) → 2 H2O(l) + O2(g)
When 1.0 g of KI is added to the H 2O2, bubbles of O 2 are produced at an increased rate. When the reaction is complete, the mass of KI is 1.0 g. The KI is a
