Problem: Write balanced equation for  the following by inserting the correct coefficients in the blanks:(a) __As4S6(s) + __O2(g) ⟶__As4O6(s) + __SO2(g)

FREE Expert Solution
  • For this reaction, we will start by balancing S since As is already balanced at this point
  • Usually we balance O last for any reactions with O2 in its reactant or product side
  • Balancing S (6 on both sides):

As4S6(s) + O2(g) ⟶ As4O6(s) + 6SO2(g)
