Problem 40P

PROBLEM 40P

Waste water from certain industrial chemical processes contains aqueous Hg22+ ions. Because the mercury ion is toxic, it is removed from the waste water by reaction with aqueous sodium sulfide. The products of the reaction are solid mercury(I) sulfide and aqueous sodium ions. Write a balanced equation for this reaction.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 40P

Here, we are going to write a balanced chemical equation for the given reaction.

Step 1:

A chemical equation represents a chemical reaction. It shows change of reactants to products through an arrow placed between them. The reactants are written on the left-hand side (LHS) with a plus sign (+) between them. Similarly, products are written on the right-hand side (RHS) with a plus sign (+) between them. The arrowhead points towards the products, and shows the direction of the reaction.

While writing a balanced chemical equation, the number of atoms of each element remains the same, before and after a chemical reaction.
