How many electrons are transferred in the following, unbalanced, redox reaction? Cl2(aq) + Kl(aq) => KCl(aq) + l2(aq)?
Two electrons are transferred in this reaction.
The question cites the equation is unbalanced.
The oxidation state of pure elements (e.g. chlorine and iodine) are 0. We may deduce that since potassium has a
