Br2(l) + 2KI(aq) --> 2KBr(aq) + I2(s) Why is it that the I2 formed is a solid, not a gas? Thanks

OpenStudy (aaronq):

intermolecular forces

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Is I2 usually produced as a solid in reactions?

OpenStudy (aaronq):

Iodine exists as a solid under normal conditions, since there aren't any specified conditions i would assume they're standard.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

oh I see. thank you!

OpenStudy (aaronq):

no problem

OpenStudy (unklerhaukus):

Iodine sublimates at 114 °C
