Problem: What is the coefficient of Fe3+ when the following reaction is balanced? Bi 3+(aq) + Fe3+(aq) + H2O => BiO3 1- + Fe2+ + H+ (aq)a. 1b. 2c. 3d. 4e. 5

FREE Expert Solution

Balance the redox reaction of Bi3+(aq) + Fe3+(aq) + H2O → BiO31- + Fe2+ + H+(aq) where we have to find the coefficient of Fe3+

  • Recall that when balancing chemical equations, we have to make sure that the number of elements on both sides is equal with the lowest whole number coefficients.
  • For this redox reaction, we already have H+ and H2O in the reaction so all we need to do is to balance the atoms in both sides and charges completely.
