Question

Fe2O3+CO gives 2Fe+CO2

BALANCE THE EQUATION

Open in App
Solution

Fe2O3 + CO −> 2Fe + CO2

You have oxygen coming from two reactants but it is only in one product. So focus on the CO + CO2. You have 3 oxygens in the iron oxide and one in the CO, but 2 in CO2 so you need a combination of oxygen in both reactants that results in an even number.

Fe2O3 + 3 CO --> 2 Fe + 3CO2
