Hi i have to problems to solve and I´m not so sure how to do them.
1. Complete the reactions and order them by explosivness (I place my solutions, correct me if Im wrong)
a) 2NH4ClO4 --> Cl2 + N2 + 2O2 + 4H2O
Now to determine the explosivness of this substance, i have to check to reduccion potencials right and calculate the increase of Gibbs free energy(not sure if its called lik that in english)? my problem is that i cant find a potencial reduccion from ClO4- to Cl2, i have found onyl ClO4- to Cl-
b) Mg(ClO4)2 > MgCl2 + 4O2
c) NaClO4 > NaCl + 2O2
d) [Fe(H2O)6](ClO4)2 > now here what I dont know is what will get oxidized firstly. Will it be Fe2+ to Fe3+ or Oxigen from O^2- to O2? I´ve check the reduccion potencials (Fe3+ to Fe2+ is 0,77V and O2 to H2o is 1,23V), but i dont know if i have to use te reduccion potencial or the oxidation potencials (-reduccion potencial). Of course, the reacion products are different if Fe gets oxidized or if it doesnt.
2. IF3 + [N(CH3)4]F > ?
i got the quantities of those molecules that reacts (1,84g and 0,93 respectively), but i just dont know what can be the products. I suppose its not redox reaccion, and i think IF5 can be a product but i have no idea if its true.
Please i need the solution pretty fast ^^
