chemical formula

The ___________________ is the minimum amound of energy that must b e added to start a chemical reaction.

activation energy

Is the reaction that occurs in the diagram endothermic or exothermic? Explain. (see candle diagram)

Exothermic because the heat from the candle is releasing energy.

When the candle was lit, a pool of liquid was formed in the area around the wick, and then spilled over the side and resolidified. Does this observation refer to a physical change or a chemical change. Explain.

Yes, because it is being reformed.

Identify the reactants and the products of the reaction (see picture).

H2 O2 (reactants)
H2O (products)

Write a balance equation for the reaction (see picture).

2 H2 + O2 >>>2H2O
