Please can you help me, I need to find balanced chemical equations for:
a) The reaction of calcium phosphide and water to produce phosphine and calcium hydroxide;
b) The oxide formed when phosphorus burns in air, dissolves in water to give a solution of phosphoric acid (H3PO4).
a) Write out the components, then balance starting with Ca, then balance P, then H and O ...
The solution offers a quick, clear show of how to find the balanced equations for the calcium phosphate-water and phosphorus-air reactions described.
