Homework Help: Chemistry/ Dr.Bob222

Posted by Derrick on Tuesday, July 13, 2010 at 6:24pm.

DrBob222 I am beginning to understand about balancing equations well, thanks to your help, but there are still some other things, which I am having a hard time figuring out.

Complete and balance the following chemical reactions between an acid and a metal.

A) HBR + Mg ->

This is confusing for me, how do I balance this out?

There was a similar example like this in the book and it was ....

HBr + Al =

6HBr + 2Al -> 2AlBr3 + 3H2.

My questions are that how did they get "6" Hbr? Also where did the 2Al come from, For the product part, I know that the three comes from Aluminum, but why do they not add it in the first part. This is really confusing me now, I think I'm forgetting this whole balancing stuff. DrBob222 please bring me back on track.
