Hydrates

Postby caseygilles 1E » Thu Oct 04, 2018 4:40 pm

Do molecules that are hydrates have any effect on the way we normally balance chemical equations?

No, you just have to balance it like a normal equation. The number of molecules of water in a hydrate should be a part of the formula, and when manipulating the stoichiometric coefficients, it applies to the entire molecule. Hydrates are considered part of a single molecule.
