I'm having a hard time balancing the following chemical equations:

- F2 + NaOH -> O2 + NaF + H2O

- Ca(AlO2)2 + HCl -> AlCL3 + CaCL2 + H2O

- Ba(OH)2 + HNO3 -> BA(NO3)2 + H2O

  • Chemistry - , Saturday, April 18, 2009 at 11:42am

    Ca(AlO2)2 + 8HCl -> 2AlCl3 + CaCl2 + 4H2O
    Ba(OH)2 + 2HNO3 -> Ba(NO3)2 + 2H2O
    Notes: Check the above to make sure they are balanced. Don't capitalize L in Cl. AlCL3 and AlCl3 are not th same thing. There is no such thing as ALCL3 because CL doesn't exist. Same thing for BA versus Ba. I have changed them above. With regard to the first equation, I seriously doubt the products. F2 is being reduced and O is being oxidized. My best guess is that the products are NaF, HF, and O2. Others may prove me wrong.
