Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I am just confused on one thing. Is the Aluminum Hydroxide writted in a chemical equation as AlOH or is is Al(OH)3(small 3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When an equation, any equation is written the elements must be compounded right and so Al(OH)3 should be correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0according to this page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aluminum_hydroxide it's \(\Large \text{Al(OH)}_{3}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Aluminum essentially always has an oxidation state of +3, because it loses control of its 3 valence electrons, so it would be Al(OH)3.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1As for the reaction, calcium is more active metal than aluminum: Al(s) > Al+3(aq) + 3e E0 = 1.66V Ca(s) > Ca+2(aq) + 2e E0 = 2.87V So...in principle the calcium can reduce the aluminum: 3 Ca(s) +2 Al(OH)3 > 3 Ca(OH)2 + 2 Al(s)
