Maximum possible points is 100 (=4 x 25) 1 Electrochemistry and Vitamin C 1. The oxidation state of chromium in K 2CrO4 is a. b. c. d. e. –6 –2 0 +2 +6* 2. How many electrons are transferred in the following reaction? 2ClO3 12 H 10 I 5I 2 Cl2 6 H 2O
a. 2 b. 5 c. 10* d. 12 e. 30 Ans. One way is to look at this problem is by examining the reaction, 2ClO3 Cl2 . The oxidation state of Cl in ClO3 is +5. The oxidation state of Cl2 is zero. Thus, there is a change of 5 in oxidation state.
Including the “2” in front of 2ClO3 Cl2 , the total change is 10. 3. Let the following diagram be a Zn/Cr voltaic...
