CHEMISTRY: How’s it going with balancing equations? Here’s the short review we did Friday on using the activity series when completing and balancing equations.
Remember these steps: #1 – write the correct formulas; #2 – ask yourself what type of rxn it is; #3 – find the rule that applies and go for it! Don’t forget also that if you answer single replacement to #2 (or the synthesis or decomposition of a metal oxide!) you’d better check the activity series first!! Good luck!
