Question

If 0.250 moles of a metal, M, were produced after passage of 1.000 F through an ionic solution of MClx, what is the oxidation state of M in the ionic solution?

I was thinking of using dimensional analysis for this, but I have no mass to work with and I have an unknown metal, so I don't know it's molar mass either. How do I approach this without those items?

  • Hi there! This problem looks odd. Can you tell us what topic does it belong? And also, can you recheck the units in the problem? Reyn commented over 3 years ago
