FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to balance the given equations.


Recall that when balancing chemical equations, we have to make sure that the number of elements on both sides is equal with the lowest whole number coefficients.


Reaction 1:

___ Br2 + ___ LiF → ___ LiBr + ___ F2

Br        2

Br        1

Li         1

Li         1

F          1

F          2


Balance Br: We have 2 Br on the reactant side and 1 Br on the product side – add a coefficient of 2 to LiBr:
