balanced chemical reaction
this is the symbolic representations of a chemical reaction where the number of atoms of each element is on the left of the arrow is equal to the number of atoms of each element on the right side
A representation of a chemical reaction that uses symbols to show the relationship between the reactants and the products
a change in which one or more reactants change into one or more products; characterized by the breaking of bonds in reactants and the formation of bonds in products
A number in front of a chemical formula in an equation that indicates how many molecules or atoms of each reactant and product are involved in a reaction.
an SI unit for the amount of a substance that contains 6.02 x 10^23 representative particles of that substance
a chemical reaction that occurs when a substance reacts with oxygen, releasing energy in the form of heat and light
a chemical change in which a single compound breaks down into two or more simpler products
the positive ion of one compound replaces the positive ion of the other to form two new compounds
a chemical reaction that involves the loss of an electron. Oxidation often involves the addition of oxygen and the loss of hydrogen ions.
any process in which electrons are added to an atom or ion (as by removing oxygen or adding hydrogen)
Chemical reaction in which one element replaces another element in a compound.
chemical reaction that requires energy input (heat, light, or electricity) in order to proceed
An energy-releasing chemical reaction in which the reactants contain more potential energy than the products. The reaction releases an amount of energy equal to the difference in potential energy between the reactants and the products.
(chemistry) a substance that initiates or accelerates a chemical reaction without itself being affected
a theory based off kinetic molecular theory which states that molecules must collide to react
condition in which reactants and products of a chemical reaction are formed at the same rate
Le Chatelier's Principle
States that if a stress is applied to a system at equilibrium, the system shifts in the direction that relieves the stress.
