d.) Reaction of chlorine in water:

Cl2 (g) ---> HClO (aq) + Cl2 (g)

I was wondering how would i work this problem out? Since I only have Cl2 on the reactants side, how do I make the oxidation and reduction half reactions? This is in an acidic solution

I was stuck on this problem for a while as well! I believe that there's a typo in the problem. It should be Cl2 (g) ---> HClO (aq) + Cl- (aq).
Hope that helps! That would the answer looks like it came from in the solutions.
