In this video, we learn how to easily balance a chemical equation. In a balanced equation, there should be the same number of atoms on both sides of it. There are no rules that explain how you get a balanced reaction from expression. First, start on the molecule or compound that is the most atomically complex. After you look at this, you can learn how to make the rest of the equation equal to each side. This is a complex process that you must walk through to figure out, but it will result in the correct and well thought out answer when finished.
