There are many types of chemical reactions and several ways to classify them. One useful method classifies reactions into four major types. These are: (1) combination, or synthesis; (2) decomposition (3) single replacement, and (4) exchange of ions or double replacement. Most reactions can be classified into one of these four groups. All of these reactions may be represented by balanced molecular equations.
The purpose of this lab is:
1) To observe some chemical reactions and identify reactants and products of those reactions.
2) To classify the reactions and write balanced equations.
