Solution

A balanced chemical equation has an equal number of atoms of different elements in the reactants' and products' sides.
Chemical equation should be balanced because if the number of atoms in reactants' or products' side is different, it means that the atoms are either created or destroyed, which is a clear violation of the law of conservation of mass.
