Chem 6A Michael J. Sailor, UC San Diego 4 Solution: balancing equations C 12 H 22 O 11(s) + H 2 SO 4(l) 12 C (s) + H 2 SO 4(aq) + 11 H 2 0 (l) How do you know the states? You need to memorize the states of the elements at normal (room temperature and atmospheric pressure conditions (e.g., C is a solid, He is a gas, Br 2 is a liquid) For compounds, you will be given their state if needed.

Chem 6A Michael J. Sailor, UC San Diego 6 Problem: balancing difFcult redox equations using half-reactions Balance the following reaction by placing the appropriate numbers in front of each reactant and product: ±e 2+ + MnO 4 - + H + ±e 3+ + Mn 2+ + H 2 O This is an example of a REDOX reaction. Many REDOX reactions are difFcult to balance by inspection….
