Is this an example of iambic pentameter in Shakespeare's "Hamlet": "O, that this too, too sullied flesh would melt.”?

Iambic pentameter is a 10 syllable line of poetry in which the accent falls on the 2nd syllable. If you read the line while tapping the table, with a harder tap on the second syllable, you will see that it matches.
