Balancing Chemical Equations with Interfering Coefficients Use conservation of mass : atoms can't be created or destroyed. Use this algorithm: 1. Assign 1 as the stoichiometric coefficient of the compound with the most elements in it 2. Find an element that appears in only one of the compounds that have unknown

Unformatted text preview: coefficients. Assign a coefficient to this compound that balances the atoms of that element a. Repeat until all compounds have been assigned coefficients 1. Clear any fractions by multiplying the entire equation by a whole number 2. Check that the number of each element is the same on both sides...
