Homework Help: Chemical Equation

  1. Dec 18, 2011 #1
    [b]1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data[/b] Hi,
    I am trying to write and balance the chemical equation between calcium bromide and sodium phosphate.


    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    3 CaBr2 + 2 Na3PO4 ----> 2 CaPO4 + 6NaBr

    That was the final step in my attempts. How do I balance this?

    Your formula of calcium phosphate is wrong.

    Should it possibly be Ca3(PO4)2?
