What is the cost of zinc iodide? Introduction. In this experiment the percent yield was measured from the chemical reaction between zinc and iodine diluted with acetic acid. The objective of this experiment was to justify the use and cost of zinc iodide as a dye in biological and mechanical research as well as in industries. Using a dilute acid to rinse the solid formed added more zinc iodide solution into the liquid product for a higher production of the commodity. Analysis of the quantity produced from the experiment allowed for an estimation of the cost of production of a given amount (1000 kg.) of zinc iodide. Experimental Procedure. A dilute acid was made with acetic acid to drive the reaction between the zinc and iodine. Zinc and iodine samples were measured to be around 0.5 grams and were recorded. One milliliter of the acetic acid was added to the combined zinc and iodine samples to drive the reaction to produce zinc iodide. The product was placed in another test tube. The rinsing of the excess reactant was to ensure that the entire product produced was the most
