Solution 1

1) `Cl_2 + H_2O     ->                          HCl                    +                          HOCl`

                                     Hydrochloric acid          Hypochlorous acid

2)`2F_(2(g)) + 2H_2O_((l)) -> 4H_(" "(aq))^(+) + 4F_(" "(aq))^(-) + O_(2(g)) + 4HF_((aq))`

Solution 2

`2F_2(g) + 2H_2O(l) -> 4H^(+)(aq) +4F^(-)(aq) + O_2(g)`

`3F_2(g)+3H_2O(l) ->6H^(+)(aq) + 6F^(-)(aq) + O_3(g)`

`Cl_2(g) + H_2O(l) -> HCl(aq) + HOCl(aq)`

`F_2` oxidisis water , whereas `Cl_2` undergoes disproportion in water
