Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: A reaction between I and S2O82 and its rate expression is given. The rate law and the value of the rate constant are to be calculated.

Concept introduction: The relation between the reaction rate and the concentration of the reactants is stated by the rate law.

### Explanation of Solution

Given

The stated reaction is,

2I(aq)+S2O82(aq)I2(aq)+2SO42(aq)

The rate law for the given reaction is calculated by the expression,

Rate=k[I]m[S2O82]n

Where,

• [I] and [S2O82] are the concentrations of I and S2O82 .
• k is the rate constant.

The values of and n are calculated by the comparison of the different rate values from the given table.

The value of m is calculated using the first and second result as only the value of [I] changes in these results. Substitute the values of the concentration of [I] and [S2O82] for the first two experiments in the above expression.

Rate1=k[0.080]m[0.040]n

Rate2=k[0.040]m[0.040]n

According to the given rate values in the table,

Rate2Rate1=6.25×106mol/Ls12.5×106mol/Ls

Therefore,

k[0.040]m[0.040]nk[0.080]m[0.040]n=6.25×106mol/Ls12.5×106mol/Ls(0
