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=5.33 x 10-3 M-1• s-1


What are the missing entries in the following table?

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