# A iodometric titration calculation?

1 g of KIO3{potassium iodate} is dissolved in water to gives a 250.00 cm^3 solution. 25.00cm^3 of potassium iodate is pippeted into a conical flask and add about 1.00cm^3 of 0.10gcm^-3 potassium iodine solution. and also add 0.1M sulphuric acid to acidified the mixture. {THUS, Iodine solution is liberatd} KIO3... show more 1 g of KIO3{potassium iodate} is dissolved in water to gives a 250.00 cm^3 solution.

KIO3 + 5KI+3H2SO4====> 3K2SO4 + 3I2 + 3H2O

then the mixture solution is titrated with 25.00cm^3 of
sodium thiosulphate solution to reach the end point.
THe 1 cm^3 of 0.1 Gcm^-3 of starch is also added to the mixture when it is near the end point

HOW CAN I FIND THE the following a,b coefficient in the

equation?
aNa2S2O3 + bI2 ===> products where a and b are the

stoichiometric coefficients

we do not have the molarity of sodium thiosulphate, how can

I find the number of mole of sodium thiosulphate?
also why starch solution should be also freshly prepared?

potassium iodide turns yellow on standing in air.
