I know that you can not split poly-atomic ions but I am confused on how to balance the following equation:
9PbSO4 -> 10PBSO3 + 3O2
Pb = 9 Pb = 10 S = 9 S = 10 O = 36 O = 36
Obviously the equation is not balanced and there is an oxygen outside of a poly-atomic ion which makes it harder to balance. Do I count the oxygen with the oxygen in SO?
What numbers could I use to get PB and S the same on both sides?
