I can't sleep, I can't stop thinking about the wonders of chemistry
Jack, you're six
Will you pleeeeeeeease tell me about it?
I guess so. Let's start with the Law of Conservation of Mass.
Today's lesson: Chemical Equasions
The law of conservation of mass states that mass is neither created, nor destroyed
Today's lesson: Chemical equations
One method is systems of equations, and the other is more trial and error.
This law helps you balance chemical equations. You can balance them in two different ways.
The steps to trial and error are on the board.
Trial and error Step 1: write down all the elements in the equation on both sides step 2: write the amount of each element there is. do this on both sides the equation Step 3: add coefficients to elements to make the equation have the same amount of each element on both sides.
H2 + O2 -> H2O H-2 H-2 O-2 O-1
If you apply this to balancing an equation, this is what is should look like
