To test the ability of Br2 and I2 to oxidize copper metal, the reactions take place between Br2water and I2 solution with copper: Cu (s) + Br2 (aq) -> Cu2+ (aq) + 2Br- (Aq) Cu(s) + I2 (methanol) -> Cu2+ (methanol) + 2I- (methanol). Write the net ionic equations describing the results of these two experiments. I believe that the Cu (s) should oxidize, and thus color change. Particularly with Br2 water (bromide water), so I recorded the net ionic equation as 2Cu (s) + Br2 (aq) -> 2CuBr(s) However, I'm unsure if this is correct or what to do with the second equation. Has anyone ever done these reactions or know them off hand? Is it possible that a precipiate could form between Cu2+ and I2?
