All rights reserved. 2 Chemical Reactions Reactions involve chemical changes in matter resulting in new substances Reactions involve rearrangement and exchange of atoms to produce new molecules Elements are not transmuted during a reaction Reactants Products

All rights reserved. 9 Chemical Equations Shorthand way of describing a reaction Provides information about the reaction Formulas of reactants and products States of reactants and products Relative numbers of reactant and product molecules that are required Can be used to determine weights of reactants used and of products that can be made

All rights reserved. 10 Conservation of Mass Matter cannot be created or destroyed In a chemical reaction, all the atoms present at the beginning are still present at the end Therefore the total mass cannot change Therefore the total mass of the reactants will be the same as the total mass of the products

12 Copyright©2000 by Houghton Mifflin Company. All rights reserved. 12 Combustion of Methane Balanced to show the reaction obeys the Law of Conservation of Mass it must be balanced CH 4 (g) + 2 O 2 (g) CO 2 (g) + 2 H 2 O(l) H H C H H OO + O O C + O HH OO + O HH + 1 C + 4 H + 4 O

13 Copyright©2000 by Houghton Mifflin Company. All rights reserved. 13 Writing Equations Use proper formulas for each reactant and product proper equation should be balanced obey Law of Conservation of Mass all elements on reactants side also on product side equal numbers of atoms of each element on reactant side as on product side balanced equation shows the relationship between the relative numbers of molecules of reactants and products can be used to determine mass relationships

16 Copyright©2000 by Houghton Mifflin Company. All rights reserved. 16 Balancing by Inspection Count atoms of each element –polyatomic ions may be counted as one element if it does not change in the reaction Al + FeSO 4 Al 2 (SO 4 ) 3 + Fe 1 SO 4 3 –if an element appears in more than one compound on the same side, count each separately and add CO + O 2 CO O 2

18 Copyright©2000 by Houghton Mifflin Company. All rights reserved. 18 Balancing by Inspection Pick an element to balance –avoid elements from 1b Find Least Common Multiple and factors needed to make both sides equal Use factors as coefficients in equation –if already a coefficient then multiply by new factor Recount and Repeat until balanced

All rights reserved. 22 Examples when magnesium metal burns in air it produces a white, powdery compound magnesium oxide burning in air means reacting with O 2 use factors as coefficients in front of compound containing the element –if coefficient already there, multiply them together Mg(s) + O 2 (g) 2 MgO(s) 1 Mg 1 1 x 2 O 1 x 2

All rights reserved. 30 Examples Under appropriate conditions at 1000°C ammonia gas reacts with oxygen gas to produce gaseous nitrogen monoxide and gaseous water Repeat A trick of the trade, when you are forced to attack an element that is in 3 or more compounds – find where it is uncombined. You can find a factor to make it any amount you want, even if that factor is a fraction! We want to make the O on the left equal 5, therefore we will multiply it by NH 3 (g) O 2 (g) 2 NO(g) + 3 H 2 O(g) 2 N 2 6 H x 2 O 2 + 3
