SQA National 5 Chemistry Formulae and equations
This page covers the following topics:
1. Balancing equations
A balanced equation is a model of a chemical reaction that shows the formulae of the reactants and the products. In order for an equation to be balanced, the number of atoms must be equal on both sides of the equation.
Balance the equation S₈ + F₂ → SF₆.
Balance the equation N₂ + H₂ → NH₃.
Balance the equation Zn + HCl → ZnCl₂ + H₂.
