KClO3 (aq) + 6 KI (aq) + 3 H2SO4 (aq) 3 K2SO4 (aq) + KCl (aq) + 3 I2 (s) + 3 H2O (l)

This is an oxidation-reduction (redox) reaction:

ClV + 6 e- Cl-I (reduction)

6 I-I - 6 e- 6 I0 (oxidation)

KClO3 is an oxidizing agent, KI is a reducing agent.

This is a precipitation reaction: I2 is the formed precipitate.
