# Using unbalanced chemical equation :

The reaction is :

"H_2+I_2\\Rightarrow HI"

According to the equation:

1 mole of iodide vapor gave 1 mole of Hydrogen iodide

Hence 2.8 mole of iodide vapor gave 2.8 moles of Hydrogen iodide.

So the answer is 2.8 mole of Hydrogen iodide,if the equation is unbalanced.

# Using balanced chemical equation :

If we balance the equation then it becomes

"H_2+I_2 \\Rightarrow2HI"

Here in this case:

1 mole of iodide vapor gave 2 mole of Hydrogen iodide

Hence 2.8 mole of iodide vapor gave 2.8"\\times2=5.6" moles of Hydrogen iodide.

So the answer is 5.6 mole of Hydrogen iodide,if the equation is balanced.
