The calcium hydroxide breaks down into calcium oxide (CaO) and water (H2O). Therefore the equation for this reaction is:Ca(OH)2 --> CaO + H2OCounting the number of each atom on each side of the equation:Atom Left-hand side Right-hand side of Ca 1 1 Or 2 2 H 2 2We can see that the equation of the balances of all the atoms, so there is more balance is necessary.
