Balancing Chemical Equations

Concept #1: Balancing Chemical Equations

Example #1: Write the balanced equation for the following by inserting the correct coefficients in the blanks:

___ C4H10 (g) + ___ O2 (g) ___ H2O (l) + ___ CO2 (g)

Practice: Write the balanced equation for the following by inserting the correct coefficients in the blanks.  

Practice: Determine the total sum of the coefficients after balancing the following equation.  

Practice: Write the balanced chemical equation for the reaction that occurs when the gasoline additive methyl tert-butyl ether, C5H12O (l), burns in air.
