Chapter Overview

All chemical reactions can be described by a chemical equation, which shows how reactants are converted into products. Chemical equations may be word equations or skeleton equations, but must be balanced in order to be useful to a chemist. Balancing a chemical equation means adding coefficients in front of chemical formulas until each element has the same number of atoms on both sides of the equation. Chemical reactions generally fall into one of five types: combination, decomposition, single-replacement, double-replacement, or combustion. Knowledge of the types of reactions allows one to predict the products of many chemical reactions.
