We are being asked to balance the given oxidation-reduction reaction. The reaction is under acidic conditions. Balance the redox reaction under acidic conditions:
Cr2O72−(aq) + I− (aq) → Cr 3+(aq) + IO3−(aq)
Complete and balance the following equations, and identify the oxidizing and reducing agents.
Cr2O72−(aq) + I −(aq) → Cr 3+(aq) + IO3−(aq) (acidic solution)
Express your answer as a chemical equation. Identify all of the phases in your answer.
oxidizing agent, reducing agent
Express your answers as chemical expressions separated by a comma.
