  1. HCl would be suitabl as a source for H^+.
    KI would work as a cation for I^-.

    Zn is oxidized because it goes from an oxidation state of zero to one of +2. That is a loss of electrons (2 per atom of Zn) and oxidation is defined as the loss of electrons.

    2I^- ==> I2 + 2e
    Notice this is a loss of electrons, too, and that is why iodide ion is oxidized.

    The reaction is Br2 (g) 2Br (g). It occurs at T = 1600 C. When 1.05 mol Br2 are placed in a 2 Liter flask, 2.50% of Br2 undergoes dissociation. Calculate the Kp for the reaction. Okay so i did the ICE table for this, Br2 (g) 2Br
