Solution: Balance the equation and write the reaction quotient expression. U(s) + F2(g) ⇌ UF6(g)

Solution: Balance the equation and write the reaction quotient expression. U(s) + F2(g) ⇌ UF6(g)

Problem

Balance the equation and write the reaction quotient expression. 

U(s) + F2(g) ⇌ UF6(g)

Solution

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:

Q=productsreactants



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.
