Nov 2, 2015

An unbalanced Chemical Equation only tells us which componds react With eachother and what the Product is.

A balansed Equation also tells us how many molecules of each reactant, and how many molecules of Product in a reaction.

When you are doing calculations (exampel calculating grams of Product), you should use the balansed Equation.

Hope this was helpfull :)
