Aqueous hydrochloric acid → HCl(aq)
Solid manganese (IV) oxide → MnO2(s)
Aqueous manganese (II) chloride → MnCl2(aq)
Liquid water → H2O(l)
Chlorine gas → Cl2(g)
The unbalanced reaction:
HCl(aq) + MnO2(s) → MnCl2(aq) + H2O(l) + Cl2(g)
Write a balanced chemical equation for each of the following.
Aqueous hydrochloric acid reacts with solid manganese(IV) oxide to form aqueous manganese(II) chloride, liquid water, and chlorine gas.
