    The reaction between selenious acid and iodide ion in acidic solution is:
    H2SeO3 + 6I-+ 4 H+ --> Se(s) + 2I3- + 3H2O
    The initial reaction rates were measured at 273 K at a variety of concentrations, as indicated in the following table, in mol/L. These initial rates were evaluated from plots of H2SeO3 vs time. Determine the form of the rate law. Note that this rate law only works for low concentrations of I3- .

    Trial H2SeO3 H+ I- Initial Rate
    1 2.40 2.06 3.00 14.60
    2 7.2 2.06 3.00 44.60
    3 0.71 2.06 3.00 4.50
    4 0.71 2.06 9.00 102.00
    5 0.71 2.06 3.00 4.05
    6 0.71 12.50 3.00 173.00
