Two atoms of potassium metal react with two molecules of liquid water to produce two molecules of solid potassium hydroxide and one molecule of hydrogen gas. Write the balanced chemical equation for this reaction.
Definition of Balanced Equation:
A balanced chemical equation portrays the same number of each type of atom on both sides, which is done by incorporating suitable integers called stoichiometric coefficients. Also, for the ionic equation, a balanced equation contains an equal number of charges on both sides.
Answer and Explanation: 1
The formula of each reactant and product and their stoichiometric coefficients in the balanced chemical equation are shown below:
