Need help with balanced equations 1 Balanced euation showing how strontium reacts with nitrogen 2 Balanced equation showing how indium reacts with oxygen?

The reaction between strontium and nitrogen gas (which has the formula N2) produces strontium nitride, which has the formula Sr3N2. The balanced equation is: 3Sr + N2 -> Sr3N2. If there is an excess of oxygen available, the balanced equation for reaction between indium and oxygen is: 4 In + 3 O2 -> 2 In2O3.
