Question

On what basis is a chemical equation balanced?

Solution

A chemical equation is balanced on the basis of law of conservation of mass; it states that "matter can neither be created nor be destroyed". If numbers of atoms of various elements are different in reactants' and products' side, it means they are either destroyed or created, which violate the law of conservation of mass.
