Step 1

A balanced chemical reaction occurs when the number of the atoms involved in the reactants side is equal to the number of atoms in the products side.

To balance the chemical reaction above, we need to make use of coefficients. A coefficient is a number that we place in front of a chemical formula.

Step 2

 In the chemical reaction, to make the number of Potassium (K) atoms equal on both sides, first, we place a coefficient of 3 in front of KOH.

Step 3

Once we do that, the number of Potassium (K) atoms on both sides is balanced. However, the number of hydrogen (H) atoms is not balanced on both sides. We need to m...
