Problem 21.12 Give the symbol for (a) a proton, (b) a beta particle, (c) a positron.
Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 5) This reaction is used to remove rust 1Fe2O3 # nH2O2 from iron or steel before a protective coat of zinc or tin is applied. Oxides that can exhibit both acidic and basic characters are said to be amphoteric. (Section 17.5) If a metal forms more than one oxide, the basic character of the oxide decreases as the oxidation state of the metal increases (Table 22.4).Compounds containing O¬O bonds and oxygen in the -1 oxidation state are peroxides. Oxygen has an oxidation state of -1 2 in O2 -, which is called the superoxide ion. The most active (easily oxidized) metals (K, Rb, and Cs) react with O2 to give superoxides 1KO2, RbO2, and CsO22. Their active neighbors in the periodic table (Na, Ca, Sr, and Ba) react with O2, producing peroxides 1Na2O2, CaO2, SrO2, and BaO22. Less active metals and nonmetals produce normal oxides. (Section 7.6) When superoxides dissolve in water, O2 is produced:Because of this reaction, potassium superoxide is used as an oxygen source in masks worn by rescue workers (Figure 22.13). For proper breathing in toxic environments, oxygen must be generated in the mask and exhaled carbon dioxide in the mask must be eliminated. Moisture in the breath causes the KO2 to decompose to O2 and KOH, and the KOH removes CO2 from the exhaled breath:
