    How many moles of iron (II) ethandioate FeC2O4 are oxidised by 1 mol of dichromate Cr2O72–(aq)?

    (I thought the answer was 2. However the mark scheme says 3, and does not explain why.)

    :confused: I dont know, sorry

    I would have said two, as you've got 6e- on the LHS, and 3e- on the right, so I would have doubled the number of moles on the RHS, giving 2 moles...

    sorry, that is of no use what so ever...

    best to ask teacher tomorrow at college perhaps?

    unless someone else can shed some light on this. im curious now, i wonder what we're doing wrong??

    that's a scary thought isn't it? It's possible to lose marks on the exam by getting the answer correct.... eek!!
