# On What Basis is a Chemical Equation Balanced?

On what basis is a chemical equation balanced – it follows law of conservation of mass.

If you want to know aboutBalance the Following Chemical Equation.(a) HNO3 + Ca (OH)2 – Ca (NO3)2 + H2O?

## What is law of conservation of mass?

the main concepts of law of conservation of mass is, law of conservation say that in a chemical reaction mass is does not change.

It means, in chemical reaction mass is nither created nor be removed.

Let’s know with example

In this reaction, the carbon atom changes from solid to gas but mass doest not change. because mass is nither created nor be destroyed. and mass of reaction is a indicate of a mass (weight) of the materials involved in a chemical reaction.

### On What Basis is a Chemical Equation Balanced?

Yes, it is absolutely true, a chemical equation is a balanced on the basis of law of conservation of mass. because law of conservation of mas say that in a chemical reaction mass is nither created nor be removed. It mean mass does not change in chemical reaction. Whatever atoms is their in reactants side or products site but after chemical reaction products is formed. but mass is does not change.

A chemical equation is balanced reason is, it follows law of conservation of mass. and balance chemical equation is possible when reactant side is equal to that of the product side. both side (reactant and product) will be equal by adding coefficient.

Let’s know with example : –

LHS RHS

C – 2 C – 2

H – 8 H – 4×2 = 8

O – 2×5 = 10 O – 3×2 + 4 = 10

You can understand with above information about chemical equation balanced. i think this information may give proper satisfaction. also satisfied with above information which basis is a chemical equation balanced. It follows law of conservation of mass
