# Balance the following skeleton equation. {eq}\rm KCl + Pb(NO_3)_2 \to PbCl_2 + KNO_3 {/eq}.

## Question:

Balance the following skeleton equation.

{eq}\rm KCl + Pb(NO_3)_2 \to PbCl_2 + KNO_3 {/eq}.

## Law of Conservation Of Mass

This law states that mass can neither be created nor be destroyed. Balancing a chemical equation is based on this law. The number of atoms of each type on the left side of the reaction must be equal to number of atoms of that type on the right side of the reaction.
