# Balance the following equation. {eq}H_2+N_2 \rightarrow NH_3 {/eq}

## Question:

Balance the following equation.

{eq}H_2+N_2 \rightarrow NH_3 {/eq}

## Chemical Equations:

Present in all stoichiometric calculations are chemical equations. Any given chemical equation represents a chemical reaction. Chemical reactions involve the formation of new substances by the making and breaking of chemical bonds. As such, the number of atoms of each element on the reactants and products must be the same on both sides. The atoms of each element are simply rearranged in chemical reactions.
