Balance the redox reaction of Pd(s) + Sb^{3+}(aq) → Pd^{2+}(aq) + Sb(s)** **where we have to find the coefficient of Pd(s)

- Recall that when
*balancing chemical equations*, we have to make sure that the**number of elements on both sides is equal with**the lowest whole number coefficients.

What is the stoichiometric coefficient for Pd(s) when the following equation is balanced using the smallest set of whole-number coefficients?

Pd(s) + Sb^{3+}(aq) → Pd^{2+}(aq) + Sb(s)

(A) 1

(B) 2
