What is the Balanced redox reaction for the following equation: I2 + Ca(ClO)2➡ Ca(IO3)2 +CaCl2 ?
Elemental iodine is oxidized to iodate anion,
And hypochlorite ion,
For both reactions, charge and mass are (I think!) balanced, as indeed they must be if we purport to represent chemical reality.
The overall redox equation eliminates the presence of electrons, and so we take
And now we just cancel the common reagents..........
To get finally.............
Is this balanced with respect to mass and charge?
This MIGHT seem difficult, but remember all I have done is to balance mass and charge using (fictional!)
