Balance the following chemical equations:
Step 1: Given equation
Step 2: Method used for balancing the equation
Using the traditional method of balancing chemical equations. According to the method:
Step 3: Balancing the given equation
The given equation is:
|1 Sodium atom||1 Sodium atom|
|1 Chlorine atom||1 Chlorine atom|
|1 Silver atom||1 Silver atom|
|3 Oxygen atoms||3 Oxygen atoms|
Since the number of all the atoms of the reacting elements are equal on both the reactant and product sides are equal, the equation is balanced.
Hence the balanced equation is: .
