Finding a Way to Maximize Zinc Iodide Output and Decrease Costs Introduction. In this experiment given amounts of Zinc and Iodine are used to produce Zinc Iodide and determine the cost of 1000kg of zinc iodide to sell to a customer. The effectiveness of the synthesis was assessed by performing percent yield calculations on the total product produced with the ideal production. The amount of zinc iodide produced was obtained by mixing the two elements and a diluted acid to mix them and then calculating the mass after it had been applied to heat. Experimental Procedure. An acid was required to be a catalyst to react the zinc with the iodine. A dilute acetic acid was produced to facilitate this procedure. An amount of zinc and iodine was weighed out with the triple beam balance. The dilute acid produced earlier is then applied to the zinc and iodine in a test tube to catalyze the reaction. Then the mixture was applied to heat using the Bunsen burner. Then the limiting reagent was determined and the product was decomposed with a 9V battery. To have the correct diluted acid the formula M_1_V_1_ = M_2_V_2_ was used in order to find the amount of non diluted acid to
