Which is the properly balanced equation for the process in which iron oxide (Fe2O3) and carbon monoxide (CO) react to produce iron (Fe) and carbon dioxide (CO2) gas? A. Fe2O3 + CO → Fe + CO2 B. Fe2O3 + 3CO → 2Fe + 3CO2 C. 2Fe2O3 + 3CO → 2Fe + 3CO2 D. 3Fe2O3 + CO → 3Fe + 2CO2

Fe2O3(aqu) + CO (g) ------> Fe(s) + CO2 (g) so we have Fe2O3 that has two moles iron and 3 moles oxygen. We need to balance this equation. We have two mole iron on left and one mole iron on right. SO we write 2 before iron on the right. Fe2O3(aqu) + CO (g) ------> 2Fe(s) + CO2 (g) Now we have 4 oxygen in the left and two oxygen in the right. We put a two before CO2. Fe2O3(aqu) + CO (g) ------> 2Fe(s) + 2CO2 Now....we have 2 carbons on right and only 1 carbon on left. We add 3 before carbon Monoxide (CO) and 3 before carbon dioxode (CO2) to give us equal numbers of carbon and oxygen.... FINAL VERSION Fe2O3(aqu) + 3CO (g) ------> 2Fe(s) + 3CO2 NOW-----> We have two irons on both sides. 3 carbons on both sides. and 6 Oxygen on both sides! Hope this helps!
