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.

The gases of NH, CO, & SO2 are formed once median products lose a water molecule.

here in this example, question and says, predict whether a reaction occurs and write the balanced molecular equation. So here we have sodium carbonate reacting with hydroponic acid. Alright, so Step one, we're going to break up reacting one and reacting to into their ionic forms. Sodium carbonate is composed of sodium ion. It's a group one A. So it's plus one and carbonate ion, which is a poly atomic ion. So it's 03 to minus. Hydroponic acid is composed of H plus ion h plus one, bro mean is in group seven A. So it's minus one Step two. We swap Ionic partners by remembering that opposite charges attract. So we're gonna apply the rules that we've learned when it comes to creating new compounds from their ionic forms. If we take a look, this positive and this negative are attracted to one another, so they're going to combine and remember when your numbers and your charges are the same, the two ions just combined together and the charges disappear. So this will give us an A B R plus. Then we have here the numbers and the charges were different. When they're different, they don't just disappear and combine. They crisscross The two from here comes here, and the one from here comes here. That would give us at this point H two CO three. Now remember, are soluble ity rules and a B R N A. Is a group one a ion. Anything connected to a group on a I on his acquis insoluble. And then look, we made hte to see 03 That is one of our median product. So Step three says, identify the median product or gas that forms from the gas evolution equation except for hydrogen sulfide, break it up into water and gas. So here we have carbonic acid, which we know will break down further into water, which it will be a liquid plus CO two gas. So you do you do not keep the carbonic acid there. It completely breaks down to give me those two pieces and step four Last step says, If necessary, balance your molecular equation by placing the correct coefficients in front of each molecule. So here we just have to see isn't balanced. We have here to sodium, and here we only have one, so I'd put a two in front of this C So we have one carbon and three oxygen's. We have one carbon to oxygen's three oxygen. So there goes the CO three there. Hydrogen is We have one hydrogen here and one br here. But on the product side, we have to be ours because the two gets distributed to the BR and two hydrogen. It's so we have to put a two here. Now our equation is balanced, so these would be all the coefficients for this balanced gas evolution equation.
