# Equations for reactions dealing with coordination compounds

Write a balanced chemical equation for the reaction depicted in this figure. Express your answer as a chemical equation. Identify all the phases in your answer.

This is what I have tried so far:

NH4NCS(aq) + [Fe(H2O)6]3+(aq) -> [Fe(H2O)5NCS]2+(aq) + H+(aq) + NH4OH(aq)

NH4NCS(aq) + [Fe(H2O)6]3+(aq) -> [Fe(H2O)5NCS]2+(aq) + H2O(l) + NH4+(aq)

• Both equations are correct and equivalent =) – Jan Dec 9 '16 at 1:43
• But it keeps saying that they are wrong... – John Dec 9 '16 at 1:46
• What is ‘it’?$%$ – Jan Dec 9 '16 at 1:54

• All I can advise you to do in this case is submit a bug report. – Jan Dec 9 '16 at 1:57
