Textbook Problem

The products formed in several reactions are given below. Identify the reactants (labeled x and y) and write the complete balanced equation for each reaction.

(a) x + y ℓ → (NH4)2SO4(aq)

(b) x + y → CaCl2(aq) + CO2(g) + H2O(ℓ)

(c) x + y → Ba(NO3)2(aq) + AgCl(s)

(d) x + y → H3O+(aq) + ClO4(aq)

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

In the given reaction, reactants has to be identified and complete balanced equation 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

Reactants and the balanced equation is given below

  

Ammonium sulfate is the product of the given reaction, therefore if the reactant is ammonia and sulfuric acid, the product would be the Ammonium sulfate.  The unbalanced equation is given below using correct molecular formula,

  

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