FeCl3(s) + 6H2O(l) → Fe(H2O)63+(aq) + 3Cl−(aq)
Fe(H2O)63+(aq) + H2O(l) ↔ Fe(H2O)5(OH)2+(aq) + H3O+(aq)
A. the iron(III) ion has a relatively high positive charge density
B. the iron(III) ion withdraws electron density from the O―H bonds in the bonded water molecules, resulting in more polar O―H bonds
C. the hydrated iron(III) ion acts as an acid in the 2nd equation
D. if Fe(NO3)3(s) were used instead of FeCl3(s), different results would have been obtained
E. the iron(III) ion acts as a Lewis acid in the 1st equation
