yes it does and that is formulas XD
A chemical equation has to be equal. The use of balancing a chemical equation is to make it equal, because mass can not be created or destroyed.
That's why chemist use chemical formulas to represent the chemical names of substances in the equation.
Equations use numbers to represent any quantity that the user wishes them ro represent, but chemical equations are a special type of equation used to represent chemical reactions. Example: 2H2 + O2 = 2H2O In this chemical equation the number of atoms of each element on each side must be equal. In this case 4 hydrogen atoms and 2 oxygen atoms make 2 molecules of water. (the equation would look better if wiki answers would repair the format so that subscripts start working again . . . )
With numbers and symbals
chemical symbols and numbers
Carbonic acid is used in the making of soft drinks. H2CO3 is used to represent the two species when writing the aqueous chemical equilibrium equation.
scientists use chemcal equations to describe a chemical equation
Yes, that where it is used for.
An equation ... whether it's a chemical equation or an algebraic one ... is a statement that says "This ... is equal to ... That.". If the chemical equation isn't balanced, then the statement may look like an equation, but it's a false statement. And if you ever get to the point where you want to manipulate chemical reactions and use them to actually do things, then you'll never know what the reaction will do unless the equation for it is balanced.
chemical equations use chemical formulas and other symbols instead of words to summarize a reaction.
A chemical Equation is a shorthand form of a chemical reaction. chemists use it to help them tell the substances that are present such as reactants, products, or proportions.Some equations also tell the physical state of a substance.
To correctly determine the balanced chemical equation, one must make sure that the products are appropriately relating to the reactants and make sure that the equation is balanced with the lowest coefficients.
They use chemical equations.
Chemical equations have frequently an equal sign (=) between reactants and products.
Chemists use chemical equations to describe what happens in a chemical reaction. The equations save time and space and provide the information in an easy to read form.
Both. you must have the correct subscripts to represent the correct chemical then you only change the coefficients to balance the equation. The product of a coefficient and a subscript tells how many atoms are present.
To correctly determine the balanced chemical equation, one must make sure that the products are appropriately relating to the reactants and make sure that the equation is balanced with the lowest coefficients. That should help.
You can write it in words, or in chemical symbols. In the latter case you must use correct chemical formulae and show balancing numbers, so it's often called a balanced equation. e.g. magnesium + oxygen --> magnesium oxide 2Mg +O2 --> 2MgO
elements and compounds
Because is the most simplified method of representation.
A chemical word equation is when you use the symbols from the Periodic table together to make a new substance. ex. H2O Hydrogen + 2 Oxygens = Water OR H + O2 = H2O (H-hydrogen O-oxygen H2O- water) Thats a chemical word equation!
An atom in an equaton is only the symbol of this element, not a molecule.
Use a variable to represent the unknown. 'Translate' the words to math symbols and write an equation to solve. Solve the equation. Check.
The chemical symbol for potassium is K. We only use equations for chemical reactions, and they tell us what chemical is added to what other reactant to form what product.
Google "chemical equation balancer". I use the first link, which should be from WebQC. (Links are not allowed in answers.)
