Video of Copper Chloride Aluminum reaction. This is a Synthetic reaction.

The reaction balanced is...2Al(s) + 3CuCl2(aq) ---> 2AlCl3 + 3Cu. You know there is reaction because bubbles are created and a change in color.

Next reaction is burning of Magnesium, i believe this is a synthetic reaction. The formula is

Mg + O2 ---> 2MgO. You know there is a reaction because there is fire created and the fire changes color.

Last reaction is silver nitrate with sodium hyroxide. This is a single replacement reaction. formula is Ag+ + NO3- + Na+ + OH- ---> AgOH + Na+ + NO3. The color changes in the liquid so that is how you know there was a reaction.
