6K.3 D

Postby ayushibanerjee06 » Sat Feb 22, 2020 7:05 pm

For 6K.3 part d), Reaction of chlorine in water: Cl2(g) -> HClO(aq) + Cl2(g), what is being reduced since Cl2 goes to Cl2 which both have an oxidation number of 0. Is this a typo? Should it be Cl2(g) -> HClO(aq) + Cl-(aq)?

I believe this is a typo, as Cl- is present in the answer shown in the answer key.

I'm not completely sure if it would be a typo, since HClO is a weak acid. Because of this, HClO is not a stable structure, which could explain why there is still Cl2 (g) in the products.
