Use smallest integer coefficients in front of each reactants and products as necessary; coefficient “ 1” need not be indicated; 2. The formula of the substances in the equation MUST NOT be changed. Helpful steps in balancing equations: 1. Begin with the compound that contains the most atoms or types of atoms. 2. Balance elements that appear only once on each side of the arrow. 3. Next balance elements that appear more than once on either side. 4. Balance free elements last. 5. Finally, check that smallest whole number coefficients are used.
