Predicting Chemical Equations
Asked Feb 24, 2007, 02:09 PM
So I am having trouble with my chemistry.
What I don't understand is what to do when you are predicting the products of a chemical equation, and knowing what its physical state is
Hg (NO3)2 + Na2S -->
I looked at my activity series and Sodium is more reactive than Mercury so I got
Na(NO3) + HgS
then balanced the equation would look like
Hg(NO3)2 + Na2S --> 2Na(NO3) + HgS
so is that right?
am I going in the right direction?
but how do you find out its physical state?
any help would be wonderful!
here is another
H2S04 + Ca(NO3)2 --> ?
