Chemistry+Balancing Equation

posted by .

Solid phosphorus trichloride is produced by reacting solid phosphorus and chlorine gas.

2P + 3Cl2 -----> 2PCl3

is that right?

    Thanks. Can you explain to me when I have to add charges to my the thing? and when I can't?

    Atoms are neutral and carry no charge. Ions have a charge.
    And I don't know if your professor is using P4 for phosphorus or not. If so, your equation needs adjusting.
