O
Let A=1 Pb: A=3E
* A iis the amount of Pb on the left side of the
s
equation
*3E is the amount on the left side Solve For Each of the
Variables
Variables Pb(N3)2+Cr(MnO4)2Cr2O3+MnO2+Pb3O4+NO A=1
Pb: A=3E
N: 6A=F
Cr: B=2C
Mn: 2B=D
O: 8B=3C+2D+4E+F Substitute in A
Pb: 1=3E 1/3=E
Pb:
1/3=E
N: 6x1=F 6=F
N:
6=F
Cr: B=2C or B/2=C
Mn: 2B=D or B=D/2
O: 8B=3C+2D+4E+F
8B=3(B/2)+3(2B)
+4(1/3)+6 Solve for Oxygen
O: 8B=3B/2+4B+4/3+6
O:
Find a lowest common multiple of 2 and 3
Multiply each side by 6
[6x] 8B=(3B/2)+(4B+4/3)+6
48B=9B+24B+8+36
48B=33B+44
15B=44 Simplify Your Fractions
Simplify
A=1
B=44/15
C=(B/2)x(44/15)
C=44/30 D=2B
D=(2/1)x(44/15)
D=88/15 E=1/3 F=6 Find a GCD and multiply
each. A=15 B=44 C=22 D=88 E=5 F=90 Now You Have A Finished Equation
Now
Substitute each value into the equation.
A=15
D=88
B=44
E=5
C=22
F=90
