Homework Statement


Ba(s) + Cl2 ----> BaCl2


Homework Equations





The Attempt at a Solution


I am using a online chemistry program, for class, that has proved incessantly annoying. This program, Masteringchemistry, wants me to type in the oxidazing agent and reducing agent, respectively, and their charges. Is anyone familiar with this program? The reducing agent is Ba and the oxidizing agent is Cl, right? What are their respective charges? Ba is 2+ and Cl is 1-, right? Please help, these problems are due tonight; and I've already tried to meet with my professor, but he wasn't there for his office hour.

Mastering masteringchemistry should be a separate class, each new semester I see people complaining.

You are right, with one comment - these are charges after reaction.
