### How you balance the ionic equation's?

The number of each type of atom on each side of the reaction equation must be the same. Take the equation and add numbers in front of each compound, multiplying the atoms in the compound by that number, like the distributive property in algebra. These numbers are added so that the numbers of each type of atom on both sides are equivalent.

I think moles

### Why is the equation H2 O2H2O incorrect?

Well it fully depends on what type of copper you have. if you have Cu1+ then when you do an ionic equation and switch the ion charges, then the compound you would get would be Cu2O. If you had Cu2+ then the compound would end up being CuO. You cant just put two things together and assume its right. You have to do an ionic equation and then balance your reaction.

### What parts of a chemical equation are adjusted when balancing the equation?

The first thing to be pointed out here is that you cannot change the actual compound formula at all. The compound has to be balanced ionically or have enough bonds if covalent. You can only change the number in front of the compound itself (this multiplying all elements in the compound by that much).
