In this video we learn how to balance chemical equations properly. What is a chemical equation? It's a statement that uses a chemical formula to show identities and relative amounts of the substances involved in a chemical reaction. To balance an equation out you must have the same number of atoms on both sides of the chemical equation. Or, you must have the same amount of mass or matter on both of the sides. Once you have these balanced out so they are the same then you will have it completely balanced. This is advanced math so make sure you know the basics before you begin to perform chemical equations.
