Please no pictures I demand the tally typed extinguished, gladden you.
The subjoined unbalanced equation describes the reaction that can appear when assign (II) sulfide reacts with oxygen steam to fruit assign (II) oxide and sulfur dioxide steam:
PbS + O2 PbO + SO2
Balance the equation and describe in suffrage the electron assign(s) that takes attribute.
PbS + O2 —————–> PbO + SO2
2PbS + 3O2 —————–> 2PbO + 2SO2
above mentioned is balanced reaction.
in pbS S = -2 set-forth
in SO2 S = +4 set-forth
so S oxidized from -2 to +4 set-forth.
in reactants O = 0 set-forth
in products O = -2 set-forth
so O gentle from 0 to -2
for 1 S 6 electrons assign.
2 S compromises in reaction so 6 x 2 = 12
12 electrons assign compromise in the reaction.
