    I'm working my way through a practise paper but have become stuck on a certain few questions. This is them in full. Can anyone help?

    A sample of metallic americium can be made by reacting americium fluoride with barium metal at 1100 °C.

    A) Suggest a formulae for the two different ions in americium fluoride.

    B) Construct a balanced chemical equation for the reaction of barium with americium fluoride.
    Could somebody please help me with those two questions? Many thanks to anybody that reads or posts a response.

    a) Know that the most likely americium fluoride is AmIVCl4.

    b) The above + the ability to balance simple equations.
