A Beginner's Guide to Balancing Equations

by Bozeman Science • 346,843 views

Mr. Andersen explains the basics of balancing chemical equations. A visual guide shows you how to change coefficients to balance the atoms in reactants and products. Intro Music Atribution Title:...

great vid but i have words at the bottom so i cant see the equations

Adverts Sonia? Just close them? It should have an x on the top left of the advert.

Thank you! I've learned more in the 10 minutes of this video than any of my chem teachers. I like that you broke it down into visuals (I'm a visual learner). Excellent video!

'NICE VIDEO', Mr. Andersen.You are the 'BEST'. The way you showed those molecules of compound while balancing equation helped me a lot and now I'm able to balance chemical equations correctly.

Wait, why do we have 16 silvers? I thought it was 8 Ag2?????? You lost me :'(
Report spam or abuse
because you MULTIPLY the 8 with the 2, which gives you 16 silvers in total c:

Awesome video. Your video in addition to Khan Academy video have 100% explained how to do this. My chemistry teacher has been trying to teach us this for a week now and by the looks on everyone's face, I'm not the only one who is lost. I guess I have some recommending to do.

I would like to thank you soo much for your video !! It explains it very clearly and basic and was much easier for me to understand as I have dyslexia and now I know how to balance chemical equations for the first time in forever... And I'm in year 11 thanks to you I'm able to achieve my grade C that I've been wanting for so long. Kind regards, Elisha Armstrong.

THANK YOU! I am currently in physical science, which is chemistry+physics. We've been learning about how to balance equations and I did not understand at all. Now, I have a basic idea of how to solve them. :D

I understood this the first time it was taught. :) I think if your good with algebra this should generally be a no brain er.
Report spam or abuse
Just some tips for students like me, where if something I thought should go somewhere (So for example, at 10:34, when he had the the 4 next to the H) doesn't end up being there, can you try to explain why? I mean I got why it went there, but a little, "The 4 went here so that you would have 8 Hydrogen here and 8 Hydrogen there. It would just help me to better understand it :)  The only reason I'm saying this is because I just learned it today, and my teacher expected us to immediately understand it and be able to do an entire page of equations :/

when did blake griffen become a teacher? but honestly that's for the video cuz I didn't understand when mrs. piasecki said it but she told us to watch this
Report spam or abuse
I thought the demonstration was good but I AM a beginner and with your subtitle covering the view of the equation it was a bit harder to follow
Report spam or abuse
bad teacher.  talks to much and most of his words don't serve an educational purpose.  If you want to learn to balance an chemical equation check out the video the best method to balance chemical equations by the science classroom.  This video is to the point. 
Report spam or abuse
can someone explain to me in the last equation, how he got 18 oxygens on the left side
Report spam or abuse
Report spam or abuse
Reactant side: 4O + 14O = 18 Product side: 2O So you ask yourself: "what would it take to get 18 oxygen on the product side?" You would just simply multiply the 2 oxygen you have by 9 oxygen to make 18 oxygen. The equation is finally balanced.

I've been watching your videos to help me with my science courses since I was a senior in high school all through AP Biology, my college biology courses, chemistry courses, and physics (I'm in my second year)! You're so good at putting things in simple terms and making sure to explain the little details that my professors tend to skip over because of how often they skip steps! So THANK YOU for being so extraordinarily helpful and when I get into med school one day I'll definitely have you to thank! :)
