How do you balance #FeO + PdF_2 -> FeF_2 + PdO#?

It looks like you have already done it!


Let's check t to see if the equation is stoichiometrically balanced. Particles on left hand side: #Fe+O+Pd+2xxF#. Particles on RHS: #Fe+O+Pd+2xxF#. So your equation is indeed stoichiometrically balanced.

Whether the reaction is reasonable is another matter. I presume this is a solid state reaction that occurs at high temperature.

In this context, just what do I mean by #"stoichiometric"#?
