# Problem: The thermite reaction is one of the most spectacular reactions with fames, sparks and glowing molten iron. Here aluminum reacts with iron (III) oxide to produce aluminum oxide and metallic iron. So much heat is generated that the iron forms in the liquid state Write the balanced chemical equation for this reaction (include physical states of the compounds in your answer): A certain welding operation requires at least 86.0 g of iron each time a weld is made. Calculate the mass of Al2O3 formed under the conditions specified.
