# What is conserved in the reaction shown? N_2(g) + 3F_2(g) -> 2NF_3(g)?

Sep 17, 2017

$\text{Is not mass conserved?}$

#### Explanation:

Well, let us see. There are $28 \cdot g + 114 \cdot g$ of reactants, and there are $142 \cdot g$ of product. And so mass is conserved

$\text{And also charge is conserved.}$ The reactants are electrically neutral, and also the products are electrically neutral.

And thus the reaction follows the rules of $\text{conservation of mass}$, and $\text{conservation of charge}$ which are followed by ALL chemical reactions.
