do i balance these word equations for chemistry...
I think I'm suppose to look them up on a common table of ions and then I don't know wat to do
ferric Oxid --> iron oxygen
what exactly am i suppose to do
please tel me thr throught process that's suppose to go through my head while doing this.
ferric oxide ==> iron + oxygen, then the first step is to changer the words to chemical formula.
Fe2O3 ==> Fe + O2
The next step is to balance the equation which you do by changing the coefficients. (You may change only the coefficients--you may NOT change the subscripts).
2Fe2O3 ==> 4Fe + 3O2
