Best Answer

Ans: a. Unbalanced: H2 + N2 → NH3

Balanced: 3H2 + N2 → 2NH3

b. Unbalanced: H2S + O2 → H2O + SO2

Balanced: 2H2S + 3O2 → 2H2O + 2SO2

c. Unbalanced:

BaCl2 + Al2(SO4)3 → AlCl3 + BaSO4

Balanced: 3BaCl2 + Al2(SO4)3 → 2AlCl3 + 3BaSO4

d. Unbalanced: K + H2O → KOH + H2

Balanced:  2K + 2H2O → 2KOH + H2
