Complete the chemical equation

  1. Jul 6, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Complete and balance the following chemical equation
    BaO + P2O5

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    The only one possible product I've been able to arrive at is Ba(PO3)2 but this is based on no science whatsoever. I can't find anything in my text that helps me predict this product

    That would be my guess too.

    Sometimes if you don't have any guidance on what the product or products would be, you just have to play around with the reactants and see what you can make as long as everything balances (charges and equation).
