Problem: Write balanced half-reactions for the following redox reaction:Cl2 (g) + 2 NO2 (g) + 4 OH- (aq) → 2 Cl- (aq) + 2 NO3- (aq) + 2 H2O (l)

FREE Expert Solution

Cl2 (g) + 2 NO2 (g) + 4 OH- (aq) → 2 Cl(aq) + 2 NO3- (aq) + 2 H2O (l)

Recall that LEO → Loses electron = Oxidation

GER → Gain electron = Reduction
