For this question: “write and balance the redox reaction for potassium permanganate and iron (II) chloride” how do we set up the equation? How do we know what to put on the product side? Is it just assumed that we include the solid form of these compounds?
First, you have to write the reduction half reactions using the non- H/O elements (find these in the appendix - they are helpful!). Then, balance these in order of non-H/O elements, then H/O, then for charge. Then depending on which is the anode and which is the cathode, reverse the anode run to make it oxidation. Then, make sure #e- is the same for both reactions (balance electrons) and add the two half ran to form a balanced redox rxn.
