6th Edition Homework 11.3

Postby Clarissa Cabil 1I » Wed Jan 16, 2019 8:01 pm

For number 3 in chapter 11, the problem asks to find the equilibrium expression for the reaction:
4 NH3 (g) + 6NO (g) ⇌ 7N2 (g) + 6H2O

Isn't this equation unbalanced? There are 10 nitrogens on the left and 14 on the right?
However, the solutions manual keeps the coefficients the same?
Are there nitrogens not depicted in the equation?

I noticed that too, it seems to be balanced if the stoichiometric coefficient on the product side for N2 is 5. Not sure if this is a textbook error or if there's another explanation for it.
