# Na2CO3 + HCl = NaCl + H2O + CO2 – Chemical Equation Balancer

Or you want a quick look: Instructions

Na2CO3 + 2HCl2NaCl + H2O + CO2

Natrite + Hydrogen Chloride = Sodium Chloride + Water + Carbon Dioxide

## Instructions

To balance a chemical equation, enter an equation of a chemical reaction and press the Balance button. The balanced equation will appear above.

• Use uppercase for the first character in the element and lowercase for the second character. Examples: Fe, Au, Co, Br, C, O, N, F.
• Ionic charges are not yet supported and will be ignored.
• Replace immutable groups in compounds to avoid ambiguity. For example, C6H5C2H5 + O2 = C6H5OH + CO2 + H2O will not be balanced, but XC2H5 + O2 = XOH + CO2 + H2O will.
• Compound states [like (s) (aq) or (g)] are not required.
• You can use parenthesis () or brackets [].

`Balance The Equation: Na2CO3 + HCl = NaCl + H2O + CO2 1. Label Each Compound With a Variable aNa2CO3 + bHCl = cNaCl + dH2O + fCO2 2. Create a System of Equations, One Per Element Na: 2a + 0b = 1c + 0d + 0f C: 1a + 0b = 0c + 0d + 1f O: 3a + 0b = 0c + 1d + 2f H: 0a + 1b = 0c + 2d + 0f Cl: 0a + 1b = 1c + 0d + 0f 3. Solve For All Variables a = 1 b = 2 c = 2 d = 1 f = 1 4. Substitute and Verify Result Na2CO3 + 2HCl = 2NaCl + H2O + CO2 L R Na: 2 2 ✔️ C: 1 1 ✔️ O: 3 3 ✔️ H: 2 2 ✔️ Cl: 2 2 ✔️`
