    Writing and Balancing Chemical Equations

    5. b) 

    7.

    a) Zn(s) + 2HCl(aq) → ZnCl2(aq) + H2(g)

    b) CH4(g) + 2O2(g) → CO2(g) + 2H2O(l)

    c) Ca(OH)2(aq) + CO2(g) → CaCO3(s) + H2O(l)

    d) 2Fe2O3(s) + 6Cl2(g) → 4FeCl3(aq) + 3O2(g)

    9.

    a) N2O3(aq) + H2O(l) → 2HNO2(aq)

    b) Xe(g) + 3F2(g) → XeF6(s)

    c) NH4NO3(aq) → N2O(g) + 2H2O(l)

    d) I2(s) + 6HNO3(aq) 2HIO3 + 6NO2(g) + 2H2(g)

    11. C6H24(g) + 12O2(g) → 12H2O(l) + 6CO2(g)

    13. C6H12O6 (aq) → 6C(s) + 6H2O(l)

    15. 2H2O(g) + 2Na(s) → 2NaOH(s) + H2(g)

    17.

    a) 2C4H10(g) + 13O2(g) → 8CO2(g) + 10H2O(l)

    b) 2MgS(s) + 3O2(g) → 2MgO(aq) + 2SO2(g)

    c) 3P4S3(s) + 16KClO3(aq) → 6P2O5(aq) + 16KCl(aq) + 9SO2(g)

    d) Fe3O4(aq) + 4CO(g) → 4CO2(g) + 3Fe(s)

    19.

    a) Correct.

    b) Incorrect. You would need a 2 coefficient before HNO2(aq).

    c) Incorrect. Rather than having a 2 coefficient on F2(g) and Cl2(g), you need to put a 2 coefficient on both NaCl(aq) and NaF(g) in order for this equation to be balanced.

    d) Correct.

     

    21.

    a) H2O(l) → H2O(g)

    b) H2O(l) → H2O(s)

    c) H2O(g) → H2O (l)

    Since all of the above reactions are only physical changes, they require no balancing because they are already balanced.

    Solubility

    23. No. The water molecules will still attract both the negative and the positive ions in the substance, but the polyatomic ions will break into units where the ion is intact. NO3- ions would not break down to Nitrogen and Oxygen ions.

    Example:

    Monoatomic Ion: KCl dissociates into K+ and Cl- ions

    Polyatomic Ion: KNO3 dissociates into K+ and NO3- ions

    25. 

    c) Na+

    d) Mg2+

    27.        BaSO4(aq)      CaCO3(aq)                                                                                                      

    29. a) strong electrolyte

    31.

    a) CaCrO4(aq) + Cu(NO3)2 (aq) → Ca(NO3)2 (aq) + CuCrO4(s)

    b) 2KBr(aq) + Hg2SO4(aq) → K2SO4(aq) + Hg2(Br)2(s)

    c) 2LiNO3(aq) + 2(NH4)2S(aq) → 2NH4NO3(aq) + Li2S(s)

    d) Pb(NO3)2(aq) + 2NaCl(aq) → 2NaNO3(aq) + PbCl2(s)

    33.

    a) This reaction implies a phase change for both mixtures, which is incorrect.

    Na2SO4(aq) + BaCl2(aq) → 2NaCl(aq) + BaSO4(s)

    b) This reaction is not balanced. There should be a 2 coefficient before KI(aq) and KNO3(aq)

    2KI(aq) + Pb(NO3)2(aq) → 2KNO3(aq) + PbI2(s)

    c) This reaction states that Ag2S is soluble when it is actually insoluble. It also states NaNO3 is insoluble when it is in fact soluble.

    2AgNO3(aq) + Na2S(aq) → Ag2S(s) + 2NaNO3(aq)

     

    35. Beaker A would form a precipitate because the reaction would be:

    2K3PO4(aq) + 3Ca(NO3)2(aq) → 6KNO3(aq) + Ca3(PO4)2(s).

    Beaker B would form a precipitate because the reaction would be:

    2NaOH(aq) + BaBr2(aq) → Ba(OH)2(s) + 2NaBr(aq).

     

    Ionic and Net Ionic Equations

    37. A single displacement reaction involves the replacement of an element in a compound.

    KCl(aq) + Na(s) → NaCl(aq) + K(s)

    A double displacement reaction involves the replacement of an element in each compound. You ultimately switch the anions (or the cations) present in the reactants to get your products.

    KCl(aq) + AgNO3(aq) → AgCl(s) + KNO3(aq)
