Ah, gas evolution equation is the molecular equation that involves the creation of specific gas is now the gas is that we're talking about are NH three, which is ammonia co two, which is carbon dioxide and s 02 which is sulfur dioxide. Uh, these gasses air formed once medium products lose a water molecule. Now, what exactly is a medium product? Well, a medium product is just the former product holds before fully converts into its final product form. Now, the final product form equals your medium product minus the water that we lose. So here, if we take a look, we have our reacted ions, So these ions will combine together to give me my median product. So here we have hydroxide ion with your ammonium ion. Remember, when the numbers and the charges are the same, they just combined together and the charges cancel out. So here we're gonna have as our median product N h 40 H. Next, we have H plus one and HCL three minus one. So hydrogen ions and bicarbonate ion again when they combined together, the charges is cancel out. So h two c 03 What should be familiar asked carbonic acid here the numbers in the charges are different. When they're different, they don't cancel out. They crisscross. And when you do that, realize that we still make carbonic acid. Next, we have H plus one and eso three to minus again. The numbers and the charges were different so they don't cancel out. They crisscross. So here we make sulfurous acid. And then finally, we have h plus with s two minus are sulfide ion The numbers in the charges air different so they don't cancel out. They just crisscross. So here we're going to make H two s now. How do we get to our final product? We say that we subtract water from each one of the median products. So if I'm subtracting water for each of these, we see what's left behind and what's left behind is N h. So we lost H two also removed one hydrogen here it's hydrogen here in this oxygen. What's left is NH three. So that's how we get ammonia as our final gas product. These two so track H 20 from them. So both hydrogen in front are gone. Remove one oxygen here because you're losing water. And what's left is co two carbon dioxide here. Sulfurous acid. Remove H 20 What's left is sulfur dioxide. Now, this last one here, this medium form actually isn't really a median form. This is the final form of our guests. Hydrogen sulfide gas. Okay, so here there is no oxygen to lose from it. So it's not losing water. So you create hte us. Initially, it stays h to us. So, in a gas evolution equation, these are the gas is that you tend to see as our final products. So just remember, gas evolution. We create these products, at least one of them as our final product. So we start doing example questions and practice questions. We'll see how this comes about.
