Intro to Chemical Reactions
Transcript of Intro to Chemical Reactions
Formation of a gas
Formation of a precipitate
Signs of a Chemical Reaction
individual atom = “atom”
covalent substance = “molecule”
ionic substance = “unit”
I will describe what occurs in chemical reactions by writing chemical equations to show the relationship between the reactants and products.
Writing & Describing Chemical Equations
Class Activity - Practice
Construct a lewis structure of the following compounds:
MgCl2 and NH3
What is different in the construction of these two compounds? Why?

atoms can only rearrange
total mass stays the same
mass is neither created nor destroyed in a chemical reaction
Law of Conservation of Mass
Zn(s) + 2HCl(aq) ZnCl2(aq) + H2(g)
In what state?
In what state?
Two atoms of aluminum react with three units of aqueous copper(II) chloride to produce three atoms of copper and two units of aqueous aluminum chloride.
Remember the diatomic elements.
In what state? - physical state
Of what? - chemical formula
How many? - coefficient
2H2(g) + O2(g) 2H2O(g)
Identification of elements/compounds involved in the reaction
Use symbols to show:
Writing & Describing Chemical Reactions
matter can only be transformed
matter can be lost as heat/gas
Describing from the equation
For each of the following reactions, write a chemical equation to match the given description. Be sure to address: How many? Of what? In what state?
1. Two atoms of lithium react with two molecules of liquid water to produce two units of aqueous lithium hydroxide and one molecule of hydrogen gas.
2. When heated, a unit of solid calcium carbonate yields a unit of solid calcium oxide and a molecule of carbon dioxide gas.
For each of the following reactions, write a description of the given chemical equation. Be sure to address: How many? Of what? In what state?
3. 2Na(s) + Cl2(g) --> 2NaCl(s)
4. 2Fe(s) + 2H2O(l) + O2(g) --> 2Fe(OH)2(s)
5. Draw a diagram representing the reaction in #4. Differentiate between elements using labels or different colors. How does this diagram demonstrate the law of conservation of mass?
