Hydrogen Cyanide (boiling temperature 26 degrees Celsius) is an important chemical for the production of nylon and various transparent plastics. It is produced on an industrial scale by the oxidation of methane in the presence of ammonia. The equation below is an unbalanced form of the chemical equation for the reaction to produce hydrogen cyanide.

I need to write a balanced equation for this reaction using the lowest possible whole number coefficients, and I have to include the state of each compound. I may assume that the reaction occurs at a temperature above 100 degrees Celsius.

CH4 + NH3 + O2 (arrow) HCN + H20

can any one help mee...??
