Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I originally had \[2H _{7}Br \rightarrow 7H _{2}+Br _{2}\] Is that right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Binary = 2 components (atoms) you have 8 atoms in the molecule

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh, okay, I see what you mean. I was hesitant putting that. So would it just be \[H_{7}Br \rightarrow H_{2}+Br_{2}\] I didn't really understand my teacher's explanation on how to write these.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you didn't change the compound, i mean there is only one possibility in having two different atoms in a binary molecule. One of each

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[2HBr \rightarrow H_{2} + Br_{2}\] ??? So 2 atoms because we know it ends with H_{2} + Br_{2} so then to balance it you'd have to add the 2 to the front?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Would the states of matter be 2Hbr(s) H2(g) and Br2 (g)? How do you know something is a solid or gas? I know my teacher said that the only liquid is water, but other than that I guess. I remember O2 as a gas so I figure any single element with a 2 is a gas. How do you know what is solid?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hm you'd have to be given a temperature as compounds have different melting points, or you can check solubility tables, this reaction (it doesn't say) but it's carried in an aqueous medium aka in water, so HBr (aq) > H2 (g) + Br2(g)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1when something is written as solid in the products, it means it precipitated
