    hey. did ya ever have to balance chemical equations on the PS portion of form bg or ag? I didn't. Wondering if thats bec. I didn't notice or bec. there weren't any occasions during which it was necessary. I don't think there were many equations on the test anyways, besides that first one about bromate.

    I had equations on form FH but all the required ones were already balanced and few were not but I don't remember using any unbalanced rxns anywhere ... i am sure if I had to I balanced it

    I had form FK and the only reaction I had to balance was the combustion reaction of C6H12O6 I believe.

    I had EH and I had a question that specifically asked me to balance an equation. It just might have been the combustion of glucose. Seems like I had to balance the O2 and H20 parts... the question asked what the coefficients of O2 and H2O were.

    Almost similar to my question except I had to recognize the whole equation.
