We are asked to write a balanced equation when solid copper reacts with solid sulfur to form solid copper(I) sulfide.
Before balancing the chemical reaction, let’s first write the chemical formula of the compounds involved in the reaction.
▪ Copper → transition metal → Cu
solid copper: Cu (s)
Solid copper reacts with solid sulfur to form solid copper(I) sulfide. What is the balanced equation?
