KCIO3 = KCI + O2

Balanced Chemical Equation – Solution

2KCIO3 → 2KCI + 3O2

The coefficients show the number of particles (atoms or molecules), and the indices show the number of atoms that make up the molecule. New substances are formed as a result of the rearrangement of the original atoms. As a result of a chemical reaction, atoms of chemical elements do not disappear anywhere and new ones do not appear, their number remains unchanged – this follows from the law of conservation of mass of substances.

Chemical Reaction Information

Reaction Type


Substances that react are called starting materials or reactants. The substances that form as a result are called reaction products.
