Writing Balanced Equations for Combination and Decomposition Reactions
Write a balanced equation for (a) the combination reaction between lithium metal and fluorine gas and (b) the decomposition reaction that occurs when solid barium carbonate is heated (two products form, a solid and a gas).
Write a balanced equation for (a) solid mercury (II) sulfide decomposing into its component elements when heated and (b) aluminum metal combining with oxygen in the air.
Cations of weak bases are ACIDIC. They donate H to water making the weak + base and H O3which reduces the pH of the solution: NH 4+ (aq) .... + .... 2 O .... ---> ....NH 3aq) .... + .... H3O (aq) + Donates H weak base ACIDIC solution Cations of strong bases are NEUTRAL. They do not interact...
