When solid red phosphorus, P4, is burned in air, the

When solid red phosphorus, P4, is burned in air, the phosphorus combines with oxygen, producing a choking cloud of tetraphosphorus decoxide. Choose the unbalanced chemical equation for this reaction. P3O2 (9)→ P4 (s) + O2(g) P4(s) + N2₂ (9)→ P4N10 (9) P4 (s) + O2(g) → P4O10 (9) P4(s) + H₂O(1)→ P₂O10 (9)
