Chemistry

Hi, I have another question...
I need to write a reaction for the preparation of americium by reducing AmF3 with barium vapor at 1100C
I'v looked and can't find anything that will help me with this...
(I'm preparing for finals, so this might not be my last question!) Thanks

Also, is it the "f" atomic orbitals that the actinides fill, and are the lanthanides powerful oxidizing or reducing agents? Thanks again

IT is a single replacement reaction.
AmF3 + Ba (g)>>BaF2 + Am

needs to be balanced.

The actinides fill the f orbitals.

Lanthanides are powerful reducing agents.

Thank you!! This helps a LOT!
