Potassium is a reactive element. Bromine is a reactive element. Write the complete balanced chemical equation using appropriate chemical symbols for the reaction when potassium reacts with bromine to make a solid product showing correct symbols and states of reactants and products.

2K(s) + Br2(?) --> 2KBr(s)

Is this correct? I am not sure what the state of matter is for Br2.
