Can anyone help me with this? I have my entire homework section done except for this. For some reason, even on the previous test, I cannot figure out how to do these. Here is the question. I hope I get this right, I haven't used LaTeX on this site much. Balance the following oxidation-reduction reactions by the half-reaction method. Ok, the LaTeX keeps saying reload page, I have been trying for the last 15 minutes and I can't get it to show up. So, I'll try it without.:tongue2: FeI3(aq) + Mg(s) ---> Fe(s) + MgI2(aq) Be sure to indicate the spectator ions, the oxidation reaction, the reduction reaction, the reducing agent, the oxidizing agent. Here is what I have so far: Half reactions: Fe^3+(aq) ---> Fe(s) + 3e- = Oxidizing Reaction/Reducing Agent. 2e- + Mg(s) ---> Mg(aq) = Reducing Reaction/Oxidizing Agent. Balanced equation: 2FeI3(aq) + 3Mg(s) ---> 2Fe(s) + 3MgI2(aq) I have the spectator ion as Iodine. I am pretty sure most of this is wrong, as I have no clue how to do these. If someone could help me out/point me in the right direction, I would appreciate it. If you have any questions about it, or need more info, let me know. Thanks.
