what is the balanced dissociation equation for KCN (s)? what is the name of formula?
KCN is an ionic compound that dissociates itself upon its addition to the solvent to form a solution. When it is in the solution it forms ions. The balanced dissociation for for KCN is
KCN ---> K^+1 + CN^-1
The dissociation of 1 mole of KCN forms 1 mole of potassium ion (K^+) and 1 mole of cyanide (CN^-1). The equation is already balanced.
