Lesson: Properties and Reactions of Iron and Iron Oxides Chemistry
In this lesson, we will learn how to describe the properties and reactions of iron and its oxides.
The red–brown precipitate shown in the picture is produced in the reaction between an iron salt and a dilute alkali solution. When the precipitate is isolated and dried and then heated in an ignition tube, water vapor was found to be present along with another iron compound, . What is a possible identity of ?
Considering the electronic configuration of iron metal represented in the diagram, what is the electronic configuration of the ion?
There is significant diversity in the physical and chemical properties of the most common iron oxides: iron(II) oxide, iron(III) oxide, and iron(II,III) oxide.
Which of the iron oxides is ferrimagnetic?
Which of the iron oxides has the following crystalline structure?
Which of the iron oxides occurs naturally in the mineral hematite?
