Textbook Problem

Hypochlorite salts are often added to swimming pools and spas to kill microorganisms. At the Summer Olympics in 2016, several swimming pools turned green from an algae bloom. It seemed a mystery at first, but it was soon discovered that a technician had mistakenly added H2O2 and that it destroyed the hypochlorite ions, which allowed algae to flourish. Write a balanced equation for this reaction if the products are Cl and O2.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Balanced equation for the given reaction should be written.

Concept introduction:

  • Balanced chemical equation for a reaction is written in accordance with the law of conservation of mass. In a balanced equation same number of reactant and product are present in each side of the reaction.
Explanation

Balanced chemical equation for a reaction is written in accordance with the law of conservation of mass. In a balanced equation same number of reactant and product are present in each side of the reaction.

Here H2O2 reacts with ClO , ClandO2 are produced.

The balanced chemical equation for the reaction is,

H2O2(
