Answer to Question #77931 in Inorganic Chemistry for AHMAD-TIJANI ABDULHAMEED`
WHAT IS THE OBSERVATION AND INFERENCE OF THE REACTION BETWEEN WATER AND FECL3
Observation: The reaction takes place in hot water. Like standard hydrolysis reactions, interaction of iron(III) chloride with water takes place in stages.
First iron(III) chloride dissociates. Then the iron cation interacts with water. Precipitate Fe(OH)3 forms.
Inference: The hydrolysis reaction of iron(III) chloride takes place reversibly.
