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.

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.
