Problem 38P

PROBLEM 38P

Write a balanced chemical equation for each chemical reaction.

(a) Gaseous acetylene (C2H2) reacts with oxygen gas to form gaseous carbon dioxide and gaseous water.

(b) Chlorine gas reacts with aqueous potassium iodide to form solid iodine and aqueous potassium chloride.

(c) Solid lithium oxide reacts with liquid water to form aqueous lithium hydroxide.

(d) Gaseous carbon monoxide reacts with oxygen gas to form carbon dioxide gas.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 38P

Here, we have to write the balanced chemical equation for each reaction.In balanced chemical equation, the number of each type of atom on both sides of the equation should be equal.

(a) Gaseous acetylene (C2H2) reacts with oxygen gas to form gaseous carbon dioxide and gaseous water.

C2H2(g) + O2(g) -------> CO2(g) + H2O(l)

The balanced chemical equation for the  reaction is

2C2H2(g) + 5O2(g) -------> 4CO2(g) + 2H2O(l)

(b) Chlorine gas reacts with aqueous potassium iodide to form solid iodine and aqueous potassium chloride.

Cl2(g) + KI(aq) -------> KCl (aq) + I2(l)

The balanced chemical equation for the  reaction is

Cl2(g) + 2KI(aq) -------> 2KCl (aq) + I2(l)

(c) Solid lithium oxide reacts with liquid water to form aqueous lithium hydroxide.

Li2O(s) + H2O(l) ---------> LiOH(aq)

The balanced chemical equation for the  reaction is

Li2O(s) + H2O(l) ---------> 2LiOH(aq)

(d) Gaseous carbon monoxide reacts with oxygen gas to form carbon dioxide gas.

        CO(g) + O2(g) ---------> CO2(g)

The balanced chemical equation for the  reaction is

2CO(g) + O2(g) ---------> 2CO2(g)
