Balancing Of Chemical Equations Using Matrix Algebra.

Cephas Iko-ojo Gabriel, Gerald Ikechukwu Onwuka


This study describes a procedure employing Gaussian elimination method in matrix algebra to balance chemical equations from easy to relatively complex chemical reactions. The result shows that 2 atom of sodium (Na), 6 atoms of oxygen (O), 4 atoms of Hydrogen (H), and 1 atom of sulfur (S) each on both the reactants and products  makes the chemical equation balance. This result satisfies the law of conservation of matter and confirms that there is no contradiction to the existing way(s) of balancing chemical equations.

Keywords: Balanced equation, Conservation of matters, Reactants, Products, Matrixes.
