Problem

Write the chemical equation for the reaction:

Solid iron(III) oxide reacts with carbon monoxide gas to form solid iron and carbon dioxide gas.

Solution
  • For, Iron(III) oxide, iron is Fe while the (III) stands for the charge, Fe3+. Oxide is known to be O2-

  • Since this is an ionic molecule, we just have to make the charges of the ions add up to zero. The 2 from Oxygen will come down to Fe, and 3 from Fe will come down to Oxygen.

  •  Fe2O3 (s)
