Methane gas (CH4) reacts with chlorine gas (Cl2) to produce liquid carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) and hydrogen chloride gas (HCl). The balanced chemical equation for the reaction is as follows: CH4(g) + 4 Cl2(g) → CCl4(l) + 4 HCl(g). Calculate the number and types of atoms present in the reactants in this chemical equation. C Incorrect: Your answer is incorrect. Cl H

    \[CH_{4} + 4Cl_{2} --> CCl_{4} + 4HCl\] @chrissy1675 the number of each atom must be same on both the reactant and product side do you know why?
