# NaOH + Ba(HCO3)2 = BaCO3 + Na2CO3 + H2O – Chemical Equation Balancer

Or you want a quick look: Instructions

2NaOH + Ba(HCO3)2BaCO3 + Na2CO3 + 2H2O

## 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: NaOH + Ba(HCO3)2 = BaCO3 + Na2CO3 + H2O 1. Label Each Compound With a Variable aNaOH + bBa(HCO3)2 = cBaCO3 + dNa2CO3 + fH2O 2. Create a System of Equations, One Per Element Na: 1a + 0b = 0c + 2d + 0f O: 1a + 6b = 3c + 3d + 1f H: 1a + 2b = 0c + 0d + 2f Ba: 0a + 1b = 1c + 0d + 0f C: 0a + 2b = 1c + 1d + 0f 3. Solve For All Variables a = 2 b = 1 c = 1 d = 1 f = 2 4. Substitute and Verify Result 2NaOH + Ba(HCO3)2 = BaCO3 + Na2CO3 + 2H2O L R Na: 2 2 ✔️ O: 8 8 ✔️ H: 4 4 ✔️ Ba: 1 1 ✔️ C: 2 2 ✔️`
