Guidelines for Balancing Chemical Equations

Also see pg. 197-206 in textbook


  • Write proper chemical formulas for reactants and products

  • Add coefficients to change # of atoms, but do not change subscripts

  • Keep polyatomic ions together if they appear on both sides of the equations

  • Balance single elements (like H2, O2 or metals) last

  • Check that each element is balanced

  • Be sure that coefficients are in the lowest whole number ratio possible
