Answer to Question #9436 in Inorganic Chemistry for megan
Li + N2 → Li3N how do you balance this equation?
2Li + 3N2 --> 2Li3NApply the Law of Conservation of Mass to get the same number of atoms of every element on each side of the equation. Tip: Start by balancing an element that appears in only one reactant and product.Once one element is balanced, proceed to balance another, and another, until all elements are balanced. Balance chemical formulas by placing coefficients in front of them. Do not add subscripts, because this will change the formulas.
