Unformatted text preview: end far less time at the balance, and potassium iodate takes a few minutes to dissolve so you only have to wait once instead of several times. 2 • Since you know very precise information about your iodate solution, make iodate your limiting reagent. If you do your reactions with about 20 mL of iodate solution you will need about two grams of potassium iodide and a few milliliters of the 3 M sulfuric acid. Use your 10.00 mL transfer pipet (twice) to measure 20.00 mL the potassium iodate. This mixture will turn brown. In an acidic solution, iodate and iodide react to produce iodine. Sulfuric acid is chosen for this reaction since the sulfate anion will not interfere with this particular set of redox reactions. Save time by carefully measuring only your limiting reagent. The excess reagents can be measured out much more generally. On the other hand, do not waste chemicals by adding large excesses of the other reagents. • Add enough deionized water to the titration flask so that you can easily see color changes. 3. Tit...
