    Balanced equation:

    2FeCl3 + 2 H2O + SO2  = 2FeCl2 + 2HCl + H2So4

    Hence, the X = SO2

    Instruction on balancing chemical reaction:-

    • Always use the upper case for the first character in the element name and the lower case for the second character
    • To enter an electron into a chemical equation use {-} or e
    • To enter an ion specify charge after the compound in curly brackets: {+3} or {3+} or {3}.
      Example: Fe{3+} + I{-} = Fe{2+} + I2
    • Substitute immutable groups in chemical compounds to avoid ambiguity.
      Compound states
    • If you do not know what products are enter reagents only and click ‘Balance’. In many cases a complete equation will be suggested.
    • Reaction stoichiometry could be computed for a balanced equation. Enter either the number of moles or weight for one of the compounds to compute the rest.
