1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Ba(s) + Cl2 ----> BaCl2 2. Relevant equations 3. 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.
