Balancing Chemical Equations
Free Games & Activities
You can balance chemical equations using The Law of Conservation of Mass.
The law of conservation of mass says that in a chemical reaction the mass of the products must equal the mass of the reactants. The number of atoms of each element on the left hand side of the chemical equation must equal the number of atoms of each element on the right-hand side of a chemical equation.
A chemical compound is a chemical substance composed of atoms from more than one element held together by a chemical bond. All of the matter in the universe is composed of atoms of more than 100 different chemical elements found in pure form and combined. When new compounds form they have few, or sometimes even none, of the physical or chemical traits of the original elements, they have a new life on their own. There are millions of different compounds around you. Chemical changes in compounds happen when chemical bonds are created or destroyed.
