Coefficient- Big number in front of a formula that tells you how many molecules there are of a compound
Subscript- small number after an element's symbol that tells how many atoms of that element there are
Products- what the elements from the reactants make when they are combined by a chemical reaction
Yields- an arrow in a chemical equation that shows what the reactants produce
Law of conservation of mass- A law that states that matter cannot be created nor destroyed
Chemical reaction- A process in which 2 or more substances combine in order to make a completely new substance. You would be able to tell if a new substance is made by chemical reaction indicators. Those indicators include color change, change in temperature, gas or bubbles are produced, light, sound, odor, and precipitate.
Balanced equation- when there is a chemical equation, the amount of elements on the reactants side must equal to the amount of elements on the products side. If they are equal, it is a balanced equation and it can happen in real life, if it is not equal then it is a unbalanced equation that can't happen in real life.
The rule of conservation of mass and the concept of balanced equations are similar because they both follow the same general idea in which that is how matter cannot be destroyed and atoms must equal to each other when there is a chemical equation. The rule of conservation of mass and the concept of balanced equations are significant because they show what can happen in real life and how atoms in a chemical equation cannot work properly without each other.
