cacl2+na3po4

To balance the equation CaCl2 + Na3PO4 = Ca3(PO4)2 + NaCl using the algebraic method step-by-step, you must have experience solving systems of linear equations. The most common methods are substitution/elimination and linear algebra, but any similar method will work.

Step 1: Label Each Compound With a Variable

Label each compound (reactant or product) in the equation with a variable lớn represent the unknown coefficients.

a CaCl2 + b Na3PO4 = c Ca3(PO4)2 + d NaCl

Step 2: Create a System of Equations

Create an equation for each element (Ca, Cl, Na, Phường, O) where each term represents the number of atoms of the element in each reactant or product.

```Ca:	1a	+	0b	=	3c	+	0d
Cl:	2a	+	0b	=	0c	+	1d
Na:	0a	+	3b	=	0c	+	1d
P:	0a	+	1b	=	2c	+	0d
O:	0a	+	4b	=	8c	+	0d

```

Step 3: Solve For All Variables

Use substitution, Gaussian elimination, or a calculator lớn solve for each variable.

• 1a - 3c = 0
• 2a - 1d = 0
• 3b - 1d = 0
• 1b - 2c = 0
• 4b - 8c = 0

Use your graphing calculator's rref() function (or an online rref calculator) lớn convert the following matrix into reduced row-echelon-form:

```[ 1	 0	-3	 0	0]
[ 2	 0	 0	-1	0]
[ 0	 3	 0	-1	0]
[ 0	 1	-2	 0	0]
[ 0	 4	-8	 0	0]
```

The resulting matrix can be used lớn determine the coefficients. In the case of a single solution, the last column of the matrix will contain the coefficients.

Simplify the result lớn get the lowest, whole integer values.

• a = 3 (CaCl2)
• b = 2 (Na3PO4)
• c = 1 (Ca3(PO4)2)
• d = 6 (NaCl)

Step 4: Substitute Coefficients and Verify Result

Count the number of atoms of each element on each side of the equation and verify that all elements and electrons (if there are charges/ions) are balanced.

3 CaCl2 + 2 Na3PO4 = Ca3(PO4)2 + 6 NaCl

Reactants Products Ca 3 3 ✔️ 6 6 ✔️ 6 6 ✔️ 2 2 ✔️ 8 8 ✔️

Since there is an equal number of each element in the reactants and products of 3CaCl2 + 2Na3PO4 = Ca3(PO4)2 + 6NaCl, the equation is balanced.
