Chemical Reactions


1. Synthesis Reaction:    A  +  B  --->  C
                                              2Mg + O2  --->  2MgO


2. Decomposition Reaction:    AB  --->  CD
                                                        NH4NO3  --->  N2O  +  2H2O


3. Single Displacement Reaction:    A + BC  --->  AC  +  B
                                                             Cu  +  2AgNO3  --->  Cu(NO3)  +  2Ag


4. Double Displacement Reaction:    Ax  +  By  --->  Ay  +  Bx
                                                              Pb(NO3)  +  2KI  --->  PBI2  +  2KNO3


5. Combustion Reaction:    C3H8  +  5O2  --->  3CO2  +  4H2O

    A combustion reaction is a compound that reacts (adding) with oxygen to form oxides and energy. These are mostly carbon-containing compounds – hydro-carbons.
