Unit 7: Chemical Reactions

Chapter 10

Remember: Any schedule changes are made to the Calendar, not this page!


Goal: To understand how to write and balance chemical equations and to predict the products when given the reactants.

Objectives: The student should be able to:

1. Identify the reactants and products in a chemical equation.

2. From the word equation for a chemical reaction, write and balance the formula equation for the reaction.

3. Use appropriate physical state symbols for the reactants and products when the physical state is known.

4. Identify a chemical reaction as one of the five major reaction types.

5. When given a set of reactants and reaction conditions, predict whether or not a chemical reaction will occur. If a reaction does occur, complete an equation (word or formula) showing the product(s) formed.
