Could anyone help me with this, i have an answer but im sure its not right. Bleach is an aqueous solution of sodium chloride and sodium chlorate(l), NaClO, in a 1:1 ratio. It is produced by dissolving chlorine gas in cold dilute aqueous sodium hydroxide. a) write a balanced equation for the reaction of chlorine with sodium hydroxide to form bleach. Ive got: Cl2 + 2NaOH -> NaCl + NaClO + H20. anyone check this for me?
