Problem: Balance the following equations:(h) TiCl4(s) + H2O(g) ⟶ TiO2(s) + HCl(g)

FREE Expert Solution

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.


Add coefficients:


TiCl4(s) + 2H2O(g)  TiO2(s) + 4HCl(g)

reactants                               products

Ti         1                      Ti 1                  

Cl         4                     Cl 1 4
