Chemical Kinetics - Predict the rate law of a reaction based on the mechanism of the reaction.
The mechanism of a reaction is shown below:
HOOH + I- → HOI + OH- (slow)
HOI + I- → I2 + OH- (fast)
2OH- + 2H3O+ → 4H2O (fast)
a) What is the overall reaction?
b) Predict the rate law based on the mechanism.
