A key step in balancing chemical equations is correctly identifying
the formulas of the reactants and products. For example,
consider the reaction between calcium oxide, CaO(s),
and H2O1l2 to form aqueous calcium hydroxide.
(b) Is it possible to balance the equation if you incorrectly
identify the product as CaOH1aq2, and if so, what is the
