how do i balance this equation

Post by glnmgpnty »

2AL(s) + 2KOH(aq) + H2SO4(aq) + 3H2SO41(aq) + K(aq) + Al(aq) + 2SO4(aq) + 12H2O(l) = 3H2(g) + K2SO4(aq) + 2H2O(l) + 2Al(aq) + 3SO4(aq) + KAl(SO4)2 * 12H2O

Please don't write nonsense.
KOH and H2SO4 will neutralize each other.

What you have to do here is separate the equations

One is to dissolve aluminium in suluric acid or pottasium hydroxide.

In first case you have to do also the neutralisation of KOH with H2SO4. Then combine both Products.

In the other case neutralize the first product.
