Problem Details

Write the overall balanced equation for the reaction.

Sn(s) | Sn2+(aq) || NO(g) | NO3-(aq),H+(aq) | Pt(s)

Write the overall balanced equation for the reaction.

a. 3Sn(s) + NO3-(aq) + 8H+(aq) ---> 3Sn2+(aq) + 2NO(g) + H2O(l)

b. Sn(s) + 2NO3-(aq) + 4H+(aq) ---> Sn2+(aq) + NO(g) + 2H2O(l)

c. 3Sn(s) + 2NO3-(aq) + 8H+(aq) ---> 3Sn2+(aq) + 2NO(g) + 4H2O(l)

d. Sn(s) + NO3-(aq) + 4H+(aq) ---> Sn2+(aq) + NO(g) + 2H2O(l)
