Please tell us about the new method of balancing equation the new skeleton equation ??

Skeleton equations are unbalanced chemical equations, In these chemical reactions, We write chemical formulae instead of chemical names.

Let's take an example to balance the chemical equation-

CH4 + O ---------> CO2 +  H2O

Steps-

a) Balancing of Carbon
Total number of carbons on LHS=1
Total number of Carbon on RHS=1

b)Balancing of Hydrogen
Total number of H on LHS=4
Total number of H on RHS=2

So, after multiplying H2O by 2-

CH+ O2-----------> CO2 + 2H2O

c) Now C and H are balanced so Lets look at O

Number O atoms on LHS=2
Number of O atoms on RHS=4
To balance oxygen  we will multiply O2 by 2

So, final balanced equation becomes-
CH4 + 2O2 --------> CO2 +2H2O
