    Please no pictures I need the answer typed out, thank you. The following unbalanced equation describes the reaction that can occur when lead (II) sulfide reacts with oxygen gas to produce lead (II) oxide and sulfur dioxide gas: PbS + O2 PbO + SO2 Balance the equation and describe in words the electron transfer(s) that takes place.

    Expert Answer

    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.

    Expert Tally

    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.
