8 Chemical Reactions



  • Explain the law of conservation of mass.
  • Be able to balance chemical equations.
  • Differentiate between the five reaction types:  synthesis, decomposition, single-replacement, double-replacement, and combustion.
  • Predict the products of a given reaction by using the reaction type.
  • Use the activity series to predict which single-replacement reactions will occur.

Academic Standards

C.1.9  Describe chemical reactions with balanced chemical equations.

C.1.12  Demonstrate the principle of conservation of mass through laboratory investigations.

C.1.13  Use the principle of conservation of mass to make calculations related to chemical equations.  Calculate the masses of reactants and products in a chemical reaction from the mass of one of the reactants or products and the relevant atomic masses.
