The dense vapor  iodine heptafluoride reacts rapidly with water to give a mixture of periodic acid and hydrofluoric acid .

(a) Write a balanced chemical equation for this reaction.


(b) Determine the concentration (in moles per liter) of each of the acids that result from the complete reaction of 4.07×10-2 moles of iodine heptafluoride with enough water to give a solution volume of 620 mL.

periodic acid :  M

hydrofluoric acid :  M
