Question Solved1 Answer Problem 11 For many years, the reaction H2(g) +12(g) + 2HI(g) and its reverse were assumed to be elementary bimolecular reactions. However, J.H. Sullivan (J. Chem. Phys. suggested that the following mechanism for the reaction, originally provided by M. Bodenstein (Z. Physik. Chem. 29, 56 (1898) provides a better explanation of the experimental results: (1) 12 = I+I, kık (2) I+I+H, HI+HI k, (8) Obtain the expression for the rate of formation of HI based on this mechanism. Under what conditions does this mechanism reduce to the one for the oringially accepted mechanism?
