Textbook Problem

Write an overall, balanced equation for the reaction of Na2SO3 with CH3CO2H, and name the reactants and products.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The overall reaction of Na2SO3 with CH3COOH has to be balanced and name of the reactant and product should be given.

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 Acetic acid and sodium sulfite.  In this reaction acetic acid reaction with sodium sulfite to give sodium acetate and sulfurous acid.

Furthermore, Na2+and H+ cations exchange the anions (CH3COO-and SO32) to give sodium acetate and sulfurous acid.

  

Balance the equation is given below,

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