SHOW WORK PLEASE SO I CAN DO THE REST OF MY HW BY LOOKING AT THIS QUESTION.
The decomposition of hydrogen peroxide is catalyzed by iodide ion. The catalyzed reaction is thought to proceed by a two-step mechanism:
1. H2O2(aq) + I(aq) → H2O(l) + IO(aq) (slow)
2. IO(aq) + H2O2(aq) → H2O(l) + O2(g) + I(aq) (fast)
a. Assuming that the first step of the mechanism is rate determining, predict the rate expression for the overall process.
b. Write the chemical equation for the overall process.
I've managed to find the answer for this question!
