Asked Mar 10, 2020

Could you explain in detail as to how we get the correct answer? And could you explain how I am supposed to know my answer is correct afterward? (Can I use my scientific calculator or is there a formula I should know to check my answer?)

react, given the following balanced equation?
4 Al + 3 02 –
→ 2 Al2O3

Expert Answer

Step 1

The reaction in which the number of the atoms involved in reactants is equal to number of atoms in product is a balanced chemical reaction.

The reaction has to be balanced before the calculation.

The balanced reaction is given below.
