Unformatted text preview: Writing and Balancing Chemical Equations Write a word equation. Convert word equation into formula equation. Balance the formula equation by the use of prefixes (coefficients) to balance the number of each type of atom on the reactant and product sides of the equation. Example Hydrogen gas reacts with oxygen gas to produce water. Step 1. hydrogen + oxygen water Step 2. H 2 + O 2 H 2 O Step 3. 2 H 2 + O 2 2 H 2 O Example Iron(III) oxide reacts with carbon monoxide to produce the iron oxide (Fe 3 O 4 ) and carbon dioxide. iron(III) oxide + carbon monoxide Fe 3 O 4 + carbon dioxide Fe 2 O 3 + CO Fe 3 O 4 + CO 2 3 Fe 2 O 3 + CO 2 Fe 3 O 4 + CO 2 CHE 131 Lecture 29 Mole-Mass Conversions; Gases in Reactions Chapter 4: pp. 136-141.
