#### Answer:

You need a stoichiometric equation. You can make a mass of approx.

#### Explanation:

I introduced the half-coefficient because it makes the arithmetic a little bit easier. I am certainly free to do so. The stoichiometry dictates that 1 equiv of diiodine reacts with 7 squiv difluorine.

Given stoichiometric iodine, we can form

And thus a mass of

It would not be my choice to do this reaction. I am too fond of my 10 fingers, and 2 eyes.
