Chemical equations are symbolic representations of what is known as a chemical reaction. Balancing chemical equations involves changing the scalar number of each chemical formula. Therefore, same charge must be present on both sides of the balanced equation. On the left hand side of the equation are the “reactants” while on the right side are the “products”. Both the reactants and the products must at the end of any balanced equation have an “absolute value” of the stoichiometric numbers. It is important not to forget that smallest whole number coefficients are used at balancing chemical equations but if a chemical formula doesn’t have a coefficient, it is assumed that the coefficient is 1. In balancing chemical equations, there are certain fundamental laws for the purpose of this lab report format which helps in making the balancing of equation much easier.
