Textbook Problem

A Suggest a laboratory method for preparing barium phosphate. (See Study Question 97 for a way to approach this question.)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The balancing complete reaction for the synthesis of Ba3(PO4)2 should be identified.

Concept introduction:

Explanation

Barium chloride is reaction with Sodium phosphate which gives barium phosphate, which is shown below.

  BaCl2(aq)+Na3(PO4)(aq)Ba3(PO4)2(s)+NaCl(aq)

Balance the equation,

Balance the barium atom in the given equation, when balancing the equation, we should not alter the subscripts and we can change coefficients.  There are three barium atoms in the right side and one barium atom in the left side.  Therefore three molecule of barium chloride is added to left side of reaction.  Therefore the balanced equation is given below.

  3BaCl2(aq)+Na3(PO4)(aq)Ba3(PO4)2(s)+NaCl(aq)

Balance the chlorine atom in the given equation, when balancing the equation, we should not alter the subscripts and we can change coefficients.  There are six chlorine atoms in the left side and one chlorine atom in the right side.  Therefore six molecule of sodium chloride is added to left side of reaction.  Therefore the balanced equation is given below.

  3BaCl2(aq)+Na3(PO4)(aq)Ba3(PO4)2(s)+6NaCl(aq)

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