“We need to balance a skeletal chemical equation.” Give reason to justify this statement.

Answer :

Balanced chemical equation: A chemical equation in which the number of atoms of reactants are equal to the number of atoms of products is called a balanced equation.


We need to balance a skeletal chemical equation because:


i. According to the law of conservation of mass, mass (or atoms) are neither created nor destroyed in chemical reactions.


ii. It means the total mass of the products formed in chemical reaction must be equal to the mass of reactants consumed.
