In this video, we learn how to balance an easy chemical equation. You can do your equation by testing it out with the actual chemicals. Watch and see what the reaction is as they start to mix together. To balance this reaction out, you will need to analyze the number of atoms that each element has on both sides of the equation. For it to be balanced, you must have the same number of products and reactants in the equation. You cannot create or destroy matter, you can only change its form, so remember this rule while you are figuring out how to balance the equation.
