    Kinetics ....

    H2(g) + I2(g) <==> 2HI(g)

    The rate of appearance of HI is twice the rate of disappearance of H2.

    Rate = -Δ[H2] / Δt = (1/2)Δ[HI] / Δt

    The instantaneous rate at time "t" is the slope of the line which is tangent to curve at time "t."

    Slope = Δy/Δx

    rate (H2) = -0.28M / 40s = -0.0070 M/s

    rate (HI) = 0.56M / 40s = 0.014 M/s
