How do you balance KClO3 ? KCl + O2? Is Cl chlorine?

The LHS of the equation is called reactant and RHS of the equation is called product.

In LHS = 1 atom of K, 1 atom of Cl and 3 atoms of oxygen is present.

In RHS = 1 atom of K, 1 atom of Cl and 2 atoms of oxygen.

For a balanced chemical equation, the number of atoms in LHS must be equal to the number of atoms in RHS.

KClO3 → KCl + O2

2KClO3 → 2KCl + 3O2
