  3. I figured the equation, but I just wasn't really sure about the states.

    From what I know Cl2 and Br2 could be (aq) or (g) and the 2Br- and 2Cl- should be both (aq). But I'm not really sure.

  4. You didn't ask the question correctly AND you still seem to be confused in your response. Cl2 does not react with bromine. Cl2 will react with broMIDE ion and that is the equation written by DrWLS. Cl2 is gas. Br2 is a liquid. BromIDE is an aqueous solution of sodium bromide, potassium bromide, and such. If you want to go with the equation as written by DrWLS, it will be
    Cl2(g) + 2Br^-(aq) ==> Br2(l) + 2Cl^-(aq)

  5. Oh okay. Could Cl2 be (aq) though? Like dissolved in water as a molecule?
