Problem Details

Consider the reaction described by the following equation.

C2H4Br2(aq) + 3I-(aq) → C2H4(g) + 2Br-(aq) + I3-(aq) 

The rate law is

rate = k[C2H4Br2][I-]        where k= 4.50x10-3 M-1 • s-1 

What are the missing entries in the following table? 

Run          [C2H4Br2]0(M)          [I-]0(M)          Initial rate of formation of C2H4 (M• s-1

1               x                               0.178             0.000570

2              0.178                         y                   0.000285

3              0.178                         0.178             z
