Worksheet: Balancing Equations
I.
Name __________________
Fill in the blanks with the most appropriate term:
A ________________ ________________ tells the story of a chemical
reaction. ________________ are the starting substances in the reaction
while ________________ are the new substances that are formed. The
large
numbers
in
front
of
some
of
the
formulas
are
called
________________. These numbers are used to ________________ the
equation
because
chemical
reactions
must
obey
the
Law
of
________________ of Matter. The number of atoms of each element on
both sides of the equation must be ________________ because matter
cannot be ________________ or ________________.
When balancing
equations, the only numbers that can be changed are ________________;
remember that ________________ must never be changed in order to
balance an equation.
