We’re being asked to predict the products and write a balanced equation for the given redox reaction:

Fe(s) + HClO4(aq) 


Perchloric acid (HClO4) is an ionic compound that breaks up into H+ (hydrogen) and ClO4 (perchlorate) ions

The hydrogen ions will combine to form hydrogen gas (H2) while Fe and ClO4 will react with each other.
