Balancing Equations

Write a balanced equation for the reaction of iron with chlorine to produce solid iron(III) chloride, FeCl3. Include state symbols.

I get the equation but how do I know the state symbols?

Iron is a transition metal so is solid at RTP (all transition metals are solid at RTP, except mercury)
Using your group 7 knowledge: fluorine, chlorine are gases, bromine is liquid, iodine is solid (at RTP)
The salt is solid.
Assume RTP, as the state depends on the temperature, which is unknown
