Students Will Review:
This chapter summarizes the material students need to know about the compounds of iron for a standard chemistry course. Topics covered include:
- Formulas for iron II oxide and iron III oxide
- The molar mass and solubility of iron III oxide
- Iron II oxide and iron III oxide uses
- The differences between ferrous oxide and ferric oxide
- Iron II oxide color
1. Iron III Oxide: Formula, Molar Mass, Uses & Solubility
Iron(III) oxide is one of the major iron oxides. In this lesson, we will look at iron(III) oxide's chemical formula, its molar mass, its solubility and what it is used for.
2. Iron II Oxide: Formula, Uses & Color
There are different varieties of iron oxide. Iron(II) oxide is one of these and it is an ionic compound. In this lesson, we will investigate iron(II) oxide's formula, its color and uses of the compound.
3. Difference Between Ferric Oxide & Ferrous Oxide
Ferric oxide and ferrous oxide are two different iron-based oxides. In this lesson, we will investigate what these names mean and how to differentiate between the two compounds.
