In this video we learn how to balance chemical equations using a teacher's guide. A chemical equation is a brief way of summarizing what happens inside of a chemical reaction. When you mix up two different chemicals, they will create new types of chemicals in the equation. You have to take these new chemicals into equation when you are trying to balance it out. The mass on both sides must be the same as well as the number of different chemicals on each side of the equation. Try out practice equations to figure out how to balance equations and then check your answer to see how you did.
