## Answers ( )

1. Answer: The balanced equation is

Explanation:

A chemical equation which contains same number of atoms on both reactant and product side is called a balanced chemical equation.

For example,

Here, number of atoms on reactant side are as follows.

• Al = 1
• Cl = 3
• Cs = 1

Number of atoms on product side are as follows.

• Al = 1
• Cl = 1
• Cs = 1

To balance this equation, multiply Cs by 3 on reactant side and multiply CsCl by 3 on product side.

Hence, now the equation will be as follows.

Here, number of atoms on reactant side are as follows.

• Al = 1
• Cl = 3
• Cs = 3

Number of atoms on product side are as follows.

• Al = 1
• Cl = 3
• Cs = 3

Thus, we can conclude that this equation is balanced.
