We are being asked to balance the given reaction equation and write the reaction quotient expression for the reaction.

Unbalanced reaction:      U(s) + F2(g)  UF6(g)

The reaction quotient, Q, can be calculated like an equilibrium constant with the formula shown below:

$\overline{){\mathbf{Q}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{products}}{\mathbf{reactants}}}$

Balance the reaction equation:

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.
