Balancing Chemical Equations Chemical equations represent chemical reactions where the reactant entities are on the left and products on the right. Balancing chemical equations is necessary to determine quantities of reactants and assures that the law of conservation of matter is obeyed so that the total mass of reactants equals total mass of products. The coefficient in chemical equations are called stochiometric coefficients because they
