- Chemical Equations
- CHEMICAL CHANGES are SHOWN using CHEMICAL EQUATIONS
- One way to show a chemical reaction is to write a WORD EQUATION.
- Not as QUICK as using chemical symbols and you can't tell staright away WHAT'S HAPPENED to each of the ATOMS, but it's DEAD EASY.

- SYMBOL EQUATIONS show the atoms on both sides
- SYMBOL EQUATIONS need to be BALANCED
- There must always be the SAME number of atoms on BOTH SIDES.
- You BALANCE the equation by putting numbers IN FRONT of the formulas where needed.
- The FORMULAS may be correct but some atoms DON'T MATCH UP on both sides.

- 1. Find an element that DOESN'T BALANCE and PENCIL IN A NUMBER to try and sort it out.
- 2. SEE WHERE IT GETS YOU. May create another IMBALANCE, if so pencil in ANOTHER NUMBER.
