Balanced equation forthe following reaction?

Post by Bchem »

K[Cr(SO4)2]•12H2O + K(CSN)•5H2O → K3[Cr(CNS)6] •4H2O + H2O
We did a lab last week for this reaction. I am struggling to find the balanced chemical equation so I feel as though there is something I am missing. Perhaps the H2O part in the potassium thiocyanate should be removed? (I added it because it was in solution)
