Homework help


Hey, I am working on a homework assignment and I need help. The question is to balance the chemical equation of aqueous hydrogen chlorite decomposes to produce water and gaseous chlorine(III)oxide. But the problem is, when I tried looking up what the formula for chlorine(III)oxide is, it only came up as chlorate which is ClO3. is that what it is? Or is the formula something else? This is frustrating me and it is due within the next couple of days.[color=red] Mad

Chlorine can form a lot of oxides.

Chlorine-III-oxide is Cl2O3

2 HClO2 => Cl2O3 + H2O
