• Strategy 3: If polyatomic ions do
not change in the reaction, and
therefore appear in the same form
on both sides of the chemical
equation, they can be balanced as if
they were single atoms.
• Strategy 4: If you find an element
difficult to balance, leave it for later. Water, H2O Water
• A solution, also called a
homogeneous mixture, is a mixture
whose particles are so evenly
distributed that the relative
concentrations of the components
are the same throughout.
• Water solutions are called
aqueous solutions. Solution (Homogeneous
Mixture) Solute and Solvent
