The following three step mechanism has been proposed for the oxidation of iodide ion by peroxide:
H2o2 + I^- ----> HOI + OH^- Slow
OH^- + H^+ ----> H2O Fast
HOI + H^+ + I^+ ---> I2 + H2O Fast

A. What is the overall reaction described by this mechanism?


B. What is the differential (basic) rate law predicted by this mechanism?
