Balance the following redox reaction by adding the coefficients for each of these species. 


_Al(s) + _F2(g) --> _Al3+(aq) + _F-(aq) 


Expert Answer

Step 1

A redox reaction is a chemical reaction where both oxidation and reduction occur simultaneously. In a redox reaction, one of the reactants is oxidized, while the other reactant is reduced simultaneously.

According to the law of conservation of mass, mass (atoms) is neither created nor destroye...
