Hydrogen iodide decomposes at 800 K via a second-order process to produce hydrogen and iodine according to the following chemical equation. 2 HI(g) ---> H2 (g) + I2 g) At 800 K it takes 142 seconds for the initial concentration of HI to decrease from 6.75 x 10^-2 M to 3.50 x 10^-2 M. What is the rate constant for the reaction at this temperature?
