Oxidation Number Method

How do you balance this equation using the oxidation number method only? ClO4)-1 +Al+H)+1---->Cl-1 +Al+3 +H2O Also, How many mole of Fe2+ react with each mole of cr2O7)-2 when properly balanced 6? Cr2O7)2- + H+ +Fe2+ ---->Fe3+ Cr3+ +H2O

Balance Chemical Reactions

Thanks for your response on the oxidation reduction it was helpful, but how do you balance equations without oxygen? such as Cu2+Fe------->Cu+Fe2 I started out with Cu2-->Cu Cu2+---2Cu and on the oxidation side Fe-->Fe2+ Fe-->Fe2+2e and what about this one? Sn2+2Fe)3+----Sn)4+ 2Fe)2+

Amount of energy required to purify copper using electrolysis?

The purification of copper by electrolysis involves an anode of impure copper and a cathode of pure copper. During the electrolysis, copper (II) ions leave the anode slab and plate onto the cathode slab. The reaction at the anode is Cu(s) = Cu2+(aq) +2e- The reaction at the cathode is Cu2+(aq) + 2e- = Cu(s) Therefore,

Solving for Delta G

Can you explain what we are doing mathematically, canceling, multiplying etc.? Thank-you. I am trying to understand how to balance this equation. We were given the following data to solve for delta G (standard). S(s) + 3/2 O2(g)--------->SO3(g) delta G standard = -371kJ 2SO2(g)+ O2(g)--------->2SO3(g) delta
