Balancing Chemical Equations Worksheet
Steps to Balancing a Chemical Equation
1. Write all reactants on the left and all products on the right side of the equation
arrow. Make sure you write the correct formula for each element.
2. Use coefficients in front of each formula to balance the number of atoms on each
3. Multiply the coefficient of each element by the subscript of the element to count
the atoms. Then list the number of atoms of each element on each side.
4. It is often easiest to start balancing with an element that appears only once on
each side of the arrow. These elements must have the same coefficient. Next
balance elements that appear only once on each side but have different numbers
of atoms. Finally balance elements that are in two formulas in the same side
Try: Balance the following equations:
Pb(NO3)2 
KNO3 +
b) NaOH +
H2SO4 
Na2SO4 +
c) BaCl2
K2SO4  BaSO4 + KCl
a) KI +
d) H2SO4 + KOH K2SO4 + H2O
e) Zn + HCl ZnCl2 + H2
f) KClO3 KCl + O2
g) S8 + F2 SF6
h) Fe + O2  Fe2O3
i) C2H6 + O2  CO2 + H2
