6th edition 11.89

The balanced equation for this reaction is supposed to be 2A <--> B+ 2C. Can someone explain how we get the stoichiometric coefficients by looking at the graph provided? Thank you!

From the graph, you can see that B increases by 5, C increases by 10, and A decreases by 10. So you can think of it as +x, +2x, and -2x, if x=5. That's why the stoichiometric coefficients are 2A / B / 2C
