Homework 6K.5 Part B

Postby EthanPham_1G » Wed Feb 19, 2020 9:05 pm

How do I solve this problem?
Br2(l) -----> BrO3- +Br-

I don't understand how to balance the redox reaction when the Br is in both products.

Br is both the oxidizing and reducing agent.
We balance it assuming using the fact that it is an aqueous solution so H2O.

3Br2 + 6OH- --> 5Br- + BrO3- + 3H2O
