Fe is balanced: 3 atoms in reagents and 3 atoms in products.
All atoms are now balanced and the whole equation is fully balanced:
2 FeCl3(aq) + Fe(s) = 3 FeCl2(aq)

Balancing step by step using the algebraic method
Let's balance this equation using the algebraic method.
First, we mix all coefficients đồ sộ variables a, b, c, d, ...
a FeCl3(aq) + b Fe(s) = c FeCl2(aq)

Now we write down algebraic equations đồ sộ balance of each atom:
Fe: a * 1 + b * 1 = c * 1
Cl: a * 3 = c * 2

Now we assign a=1 and solve the system of linear algebra equations:
a + b = c
a * 3 = c * 2
a = 1

Solving this linear algebra system we arrive at:
a = 1
b = 0.5
c = 1.5

To get đồ sộ integer coefficients we multiply all variable by 2
a = 2
b = 1
c = 3

Now we substitute the variables in the original equations with the values obtained by solving the linear algebra system and arrive at the fully balanced equation:
2 FeCl3(aq) + Fe(s) = 3 FeCl2(aq)

### Understanding chemical equations

A chemical equation represents a chemical reaction. It shows the reactants (substances that start a reaction) and products (substances formed by the reaction). For example, in the reaction of hydrogen (H₂) with oxygen (O₂) đồ sộ size water (H₂O), the chemical equation is:

H2 + O2 = H2O

However, this equation isn't balanced because the number of atoms for each element is not the same on both sides of the equation. A balanced equation obeys the Law of Conservation of Mass, which states that matter is neither created nor destroyed in a chemical reaction.

### Balancing with inspection or trial and error method

This is the most straightforward method. It involves looking at the equation and adjusting the coefficients đồ sộ get the same number of each type of atom on both sides of the equation.

Best for: Simple equations with a small number of atoms.

Process: Start with the most complex molecule or the one with the most elements, and adjust the coefficients of the reactants and products until the equation is balanced.

Example:H2 + O2 = H2O
1. Count the number of H and O atoms on both sides. There are 2 H atoms on the left and 2 H atom on the right. There are 2 O atoms on the left and 1 O atom on the right.
2. Balance the oxygen atoms by placing a coefficient of 2 in front of H2O:

H2 + O2 = 2H2O

3. Now, there are 4 H atoms on the right side, so sánh we adjust the left side đồ sộ match:

2H2 + O2 = 2H2O

4. Check the balance. Now, both sides have 4 H atoms and 2 O atoms. The equation is balanced.

### Balancing with algebraic method

This method uses algebraic equations đồ sộ find the correct coefficients. Each molecule's coefficient is represented by a variable (like x, hắn, z), and a series of equations are mix up based on the number of each type of atom.

Best for: Equations that are more complex and not easily balanced by inspection.

Process: Assign variables đồ sộ each coefficient, write equations for each element, and then solve the system of equations đồ sộ find the values of the variables.

Example: C2H6 + O2 = CO2 + H2O
1. Assign variables đồ sộ coefficients:

a C2H6 + b O2 = c CO2 + d H2O

2. Write down equations based on atom conservation:
• 2 a = c
• 6 a = 2 d
• 2 b = 2c + d
3. Assign one of the coefficients đồ sộ 1 and solve the system.
• a = 1
• c = 2 a = 2
• d = 6 a / 2 = 4
• b = (2 c + d) / 2 = (2 * 2 + 3) / 2 = 3.5
4. Adjust coefficient đồ sộ make sure all of them are integers. b = 3.5 so sánh we need đồ sộ multiple all coefficient by 2 đồ sộ arrive at the balanced equation with integer coefficients:

2 C2H6 + 7 O 2 = 4 CO2 + 6 H2O

### Balancing with oxidation number method

Useful for redox reactions, this method involves balancing the equation based on the change in oxidation numbers.

Best For: Redox reactions where electron transfer occurs.

Process: identify the oxidation numbers, determine the changes in oxidation state, balance the atoms that change their oxidation state, and then balance the remaining atoms and charges.

Example: Ca + Phường = Ca3P2
1. Assign oxidation numbers:
• Calcium (Ca) has an oxidation number of 0 in its elemental size.
• Phosphorus (P) also has an oxidation number of 0 in its elemental size.
• In Ca3P2, calcium has an oxidation number of +2, and phosphorus has an oxidation number of -3.
2. Identify the changes in oxidation numbers:
• Calcium goes from 0 đồ sộ +2, losing 2 electrons (reduction).
• Phosphorus goes from 0 đồ sộ -3, gaining 3 electrons (oxidation).
3. Balance the changes using electrons: Multiply the number of calcium atoms by 3 and the number of phosphorus atoms by 2.
4. Write the balanced Equation:

3 Ca + 2 Phường = Ca3P2

### Balancing with ion-electron half-reaction method

This method separates the reaction into two half-reactions – one for oxidation and one for reduction. Each half-reaction is balanced separately and then combined.

Best for: complex redox reactions, especially in acidic or basic solutions.

Process: split the reaction into two half-reactions, balance the atoms and charges in each half-reaction, and then combine the half-reactions, ensuring that electrons are balanced.

Example: Cu + HNO3 = Cu(NO3)2 + NO2 + H2O
1. Write down and balance half reactions:

Cu = Cu{2+} + 2{e}

H{+} + HNO3 + {e} = NO2 + H2O

2. Combine half reactions đồ sộ balance electrons. To accomplish that we multiple the second half reaction by 2 and add it đồ sộ the first one:

Cu + 2H{+} + 2HNO3 + 2{e} = Cu{2+} + 2NO2 + 2H2O + 2{e}

3. Cancel out electrons on both sides and add NO3{-} ions. H{+} with NO3{-} makes HNO3 and Cu{2+} with NO3{-} makes Cu(NO3)3:

Cu + 4HNO3 = Cu(NO3)2 + 2NO2 + 2H2O
