The Brainliest Answer!

next, balance for all the atoms,

like to ensure the no. of P atoms on lhs and rhs of the equation,

2a=c+d

for I atoms,

4a=d

for H atoms,

2b=3c+4d

for O atoms,

b=4c

next, find relations between all the coefficients, let them be all in the form of a, say.

solving those equations, we have,

c=8a/9

b=32a/9

d=10a/9

a will get cancelled on all sides.

convert the coefficients into natural numbers.

9P2I4+32H2O=8H3PO4+10PH4I

the equation is balanced now.

ask if you still have doubts..
