# Which coefficients balance this equation? CaCl_2+NaOH -> Ca(OH)_2+NaCl

May 17, 2018

See Below.

#### Explanation:

It's Actually easy.

First Let's Check The Equation.

$C a C {l}_{2} + N a O H \to C a {\left(O H\right)}_{2} + N a C l$

In L.H.S, We can see two chlorine atoms, but in R.H.S, we can see only one.

The same thing applies for the $O H$ as well.

So, To balance, We will assign $2$ as coefficient to $N a C l$, and $2$ as coefficient to $N a O H$.

Let's see the finalised equation.

$C a C {l}_{2} + 2 N a O H = C a {\left(O H\right)}_{2} + 2 N a C l$.

Well, It's Balanced now!

Hope this helps.
