# Redox titration calculation OCRWatch

1.015g of potassium iodate was dissolves in water and made up to 250cm3 of solution. 25cm3 of this was added to excess KI solution in acid before being titrated against sodium thiosulphate. 29.80cm3 of this thiosulphate solution was required. Calculate conc of sodium thiosulphate.

Equations given - IO3- + 5I- + 6H+ > 3I2 + 3H2O
2S2O32- + I2 > S4O62- + 2I-

What I've done so far :
1.015/174.9 to get moles which is 5.8x10-3
I then divide this by 10 to get moles in 25cm3 which gives me 5.8x10-4
I then multiply this answer by 3 to get moles of Iodine
Then multiply it by 2 to get moles of S2O3 in the second equation
I then use the calculation conc = mol/vol

Can anyone explain where I'm going wrong? Thank you )

The ratio of thiosulfate to iodine is 2:1 so shouldn't you double the moles of iodine to find the moles of thiosulfate rather than dividing?

I miswrote that, I am multiplying it by 2 but I'm still not getting 0.095mol fm-3

Your Mr at the beginning is wrong. The molar mass of potassium iodate is 214. Everything else is correct though, change that and you'll get the right answer.

Ohh I was using IO3- given in the equation.
Thank you for clearing that up
