Have you seen my video on calculating iodine number?

1 mole of iodine (I2) reacts with one mole of double bonds. Determine how many double bonds there are in the molecule and you can calculate the mass of iodine in grams that react with the fatty acid.

But remember that iodine number is the mass of iodine that reacts with 100g of fat so calculate accordingly.
