Textbook Problem

Write an overall, balanced equation for the reaction of (NH4)2S with HBr, and name the reactants and products.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Name of the reactant and product obtained in the given reaction has to be given and the balanced equation for the given reaction should be written.

Concept introduction:

The law of conservation of mass states that no atoms can be created or destroyed in a chemical reaction, therefore, the number of atoms present in the reactants is equal to the number of atoms present in the products.

Explanation

The given compound is Ammonium sulfide and hydrobromic acid.  In this reaction Ammonium sulfide reaction with hydrobromic acid to give Ammonium bromide and hydrogen sulfide.

Furthermore, NH4+and H+ cations exchange the anions (Br-and S2-) to give Ammonium bromide and hydrogen sulfide.

  

Balance the equation is given below,

Balance the hydrogen atom in the given equation, when balancing the equation, we should not alter the subscripts and we can change coefficients
