## Callisto 2 years ago @nincompoop Your question: Balance the equation: $Fe(CN)_3+SnCl_2→FeCl_2+Sn(CN)_4$

1. Callisto

Don't think it is a right equation...Let see if others can help!

2. Carl_Pham

You can't balance this equation, any more than you could balance ${\rm H}_2{\rm O} \rightarrow {\rm OH}^{-}$. You've got a CN- appearing out of nowhere.

3. Carl_Pham

Perhaps you were under the impression that any chemical equation in which every element on the RHS appears on the LHS can be balanced. That is not the case, and you have an example of why not.
