    wasn't aware, sorry

    So yeah, what the guy above said... HCl is formed instead of hydrogen. I've figured out the percentage yield, so if you want to compare answers once you've done it let me know.

    I can't seem to balance the equation :/

    Any help would be very appreciated!!!
    The only thing you care about for these questions is the ratio of your limiting reactant to your product; in this case, it's fairly clear it's 1:1. You can then do your moles/mass etc to find yield.

    If you really want to balance the equation, then just use fractions to save time/effort with things like chlorine to get 1 atom at a time instead of 2 (e.g. x + 0.5Cl2 -> ~~ instead of 2x + Cl2 -> ~~~). The H2 should be HCl though in your equation.
