1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data For those who have mastered the balancing of any type o redox equation, an extra challenge is provided below. Balance each of the following equations. Note: all of the reactions take place in aqueous solution. 2. Relevant equations HIO3 + FeI2 + HCl ====> FeCl3 + ICl + HOH 3. The attempt at a solution The oxidation numbers that is got in order of equation reactants H +1 I +5 O3 -6 (-2each) Fe + 2 I -2 (-1each) H +1 Cl -1 Products Fe +3 Cl3 -3 (-1each) I +1 Cl -1 H +1 O -2 H +1 The two half reactions (I'm not sure about these, though this is only thing that comes to my head) 1. FeI2 ===> FeCl3 (I dont get how i would balance these) do i add HCl to the right side and ICl and HOH to the left? 2. HIO3 ===> ICl Do I add HCl to the right and HOH to the left? i asked all my friends but none seem to know how to do these. i have more like this but if i know how to do this i would get the rest. Do i balance it first? 5HIO3 + 4FeI2 + 25HCl ==> 4FeCl + 13 ICl + 15HOH All help Appreciated Thanks!
