Um how

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.

  • Chemistry -

    If that's
    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
