balaning redox reactions

Postby CristinaMorales1F » Sun Mar 17, 2019 12:23 am

when a element has a exponent is like 2+, do the coefficients in front of the element affect that?

Yes, it is relevant when balancing the charges of the equation.

In the example of 2Fe^2+, a reduction reaction would look like:

2Fe^2+ + 4e- ---> 2Fe

I hope this answered your question!

yes for example, if the ion has a +2 charge and the coefficient in from of it is 2, then the charge for that species would be +4.
