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

Solution: Hydrogen peroxide, H2O2 (aq), decomposes to H2O (l) and O2 (g) in a reaction that has a rate constant equal to 1.06 x 10 -3 M-1 • min-1 at a given temperature. How long will it take for 20% of a sample of H2O2 to decompose or decay?
