PREDICTING PRODUCTS OF CHEMICAL REACTIONS

GOAL: to be able to look at the reactants of a chemical equation and tell what the products will be

COMBUSTION REACTIONS

~ How can you recognize the reactants in a combustion reaction?

~ What are the products in a combustion reaction?

* EXAMPLE: ___ C2H4 + ___ O2

DOUBLE REPLACEMENT REACTIONS

~ How do you recognize the reactants in a double replacement reaction?

~ How do you determine the products of a double replacement reaction?

 

* EXAMPLE: ___ Ca(NO3)2 ___ K2CO3

SINGLE REPLACEMENT REACTIONS

~ How do you recognize the reactants in a single replacement reaction?

~ How do you determine what the products are in a single replacement reaction, if there are any
products at all?


~ How is the Activity Series
used with single replacement reactions?

 

* EXAMPLE: ___ Zn + ___ FeCrO4

SYNTHESIS REACTIONS

~ How do you recognize a synthesis reaction by its reactants?

~ How do you decide what the products will be? 


* EXAMPLE: ___ Mg + ___ O2 -->

DECOMPOSITION REACTIONS

~ How can you recognize a decomposition reaction when the reactant(s) are given?

~ How do you determine the products?
* BINARY COMPOUND

* METAL CHLORATE

* METAL CARBONATE

* METAL BICARBONATE
