Types Of Chemical Reactions
By: Rita Harkless
Equation: A + B ---> AB
Examples: Hydrogen and oxygen reacting to form water.
Equation: AB ---> A + B
Examples: When electricity passes through water, the water decomposes into hydrogen gas and oxygen gas.
Equation: A +BC ---> B + AC
Examples: Copper wire is submerged in a solution of silver nitrate.
Equations: AB + CD ---> AD + CB
Examples: When potassium iodide solution is poured into a solution of lead (III) nitrate.
Equation: CH4 +2O2 ---> CO2 + 2H2O
Examples: A brunsen burner generates heat and light by combustion of natural gas.
