Trivia question for the day!

For chemistry I needed to balance this chemical equation. Unfortunately, Daddy and I could not figure it out. Can you solve it and show us how you did it?

NH4 ClO3 + Al2(SO4)3 -> Al(ClO3)3 + (NH4)2 SO3

P.S.  Yes, we have an answer key, but I want to see someone else figure it out 🙂


One thought on “Trivia question for the day!”

  1. Is there a typo? Shouldn’t the last SO3 in the equation be SO4? If so, then the solution would be:

    6(NH4 CIO3) + Al2(SO4)3 = 2(Al(CIO3)3) + 3((NH4)2 SO4)

    Or is Opa too many years away from his Chemistry lessons?
