The methodic error of reaction between acetone and iodine was investigated using a simple and novel method. The relative error was calculated to as low as 10-4. We also give a discussion on the reason causing this error.

Key words: Reaction between acetone and iodine, Mean reaction rate, Momentary reaction rate, Relative error
