The hypochlorite ion, ClO-, is the active ingredient in
bleach. The perchlorate ion, ClO4-, is a main component
of rocket propellants. Draw Lewis structures for both ions.

(a) What is the formal charge of Cl in the hypochlorite ion?
(b) What is the formal charge of Cl in the perchlorate ion, assuming
the Cl—O bonds are all single bonds? (c) What is the
oxidation number of Cl in the hypochlorite ion? (d) What
is the oxidation number of Cl in the perchlorate ion, assuming
the Cl—O bonds are all single bonds? (e) In a redox reaction,
which ion would you expect to be more easily reduced?
