Balancing Chemical Equations

Balancing Chemical Equations

Just follow these steps.

Its quite easy really

Slide 2

Firstly you need an equation with the correct formulae in. Youll probably be given this in the question

Just like this one

Mg + O2  MgO

Mg

O

Slide 3

[1] Just count up the atoms on each side

[1] Just count up the atoms on each side

Then start balancing:

[2] The numbers arent balanced so then add BIG numbers to make up for any shortages

And adjust totals

Slide 4

But the numbers still arent equal, so add another BIG number

But the numbers still arent equal, so add another BIG number

2

And adjust totals again

NOW BOTH SIDES HAVE EQUAL NUMBERS OF ATOMS

WE SAY THAT THE EQUATION IS BALANCED!!

Slide 5

Try to balance these equations using the same method:

Try to balance these equations using the same method:

[1] Na + Cl2  NaCl

[2] CH4 + O2  CO2 + H2O

[4] Al + O2  Al2O3

[3] Li + HNO3  LiNO3 + H2

Slide 6

How did you get on??

How did you get on??

[1] 2 Na + Cl2  2 NaCl

[2] CH4 + 2 O2  CO2 + 2 H2O

[4] 4 Al + 3 O2  2 Al2O3

[3] 2 Li + 2 HNO3  2 LiNO3 + H2

Here are the answers:

HOPE YOUVE GOT THE IDEA REMEMBER TO CHECK THAT YOU CAN DO ELECTROLYSIS EQUATIONS TOO

Slide 7

Electrolysis equations ones to check

Electrolysis equations ones to check

[a] Cu2+ + e-  Cu

[b] Cl- - e-  Cl2

[c] H+ + e-  H2

[d] Br -  Br2 + e-

Slide 8

The answers are.

The answers are.

Remember to balance the charges on each side of the arrow

[a] Cu2+ + 2 e-  Cu

[b] 2 Cl- - 2 e-  Cl2

[c] 2 H+ + 2 e-  H2

[d] 2 Br -  Br2 + 2 e-

Slide 9

Hope that makes things a bit clearer.

Hope that makes things a bit clearer.

Just remember its all about balance
