    write ionic equations to show the oxidation and reduction processes that are going on within these reactions:

    a) Cl2 (g) + 2KBr (aq) > 2KCl (aq) + Br2 (g)

    b) Mg (s) + 2HCl (aq) > MgCl2 (aq) + H2 (g)

    c) Fe(s) + CuSO4 (aq) > FeSO4 (aq) + Cu(s)

    thankyou

    a) Cl2 + 2Br- --> Br2 + 2Cl-
    b)Mg2+ + 2Cl- --> MgCl2
    c) Fe2+ + SO4 2- --> FeSO4

    i have no idea if thats right but i thought id try and help

    a) Cl2 (g) + 2[K]+[Br]- (aq) > 2([K]+[Cl]-) (aq) + Br2 (g) Bromide oxidised to Bromine, Chlorine reduced to Chloride

    b) Mg (s) + 2([H]+[Cl]-) (aq) > [Mg]2+2[Cl]- (aq) + H2 (g) Magnesium oxidised, Hydrogen reduced

    c) Fe(s) + [Cu]2+[SO4]2- (aq) > [Fe]2+[SO4]2- (aq) + Cu(s) Iron oxidised, Copper reduced, are you sure this one is Iron (II) rather than Iron (III)?

    This looks like you are asking someone else to do your homework for you, and it is not going to be me What you have to do is look for the specator ions, and romove them from the equations. Quote me if you need help doing that

    thankyou
    Write it as an ionic equation then remove the spectator ions
