2 DefinitionA chemical reaction is the process by which one or more substances change into one or more new substances whose chemical and physical properties differ from those of the original substances.

15 DecompositionA decomposition reaction starts with one reactant and ends up with two or more products.
16 DecompositionCalcium carbonate decomposes to produce calcium oxide and carbon dioxide.CaCO3 CaO + CO2
17 Single ReplacementA single-replacement reaction starts with two reactants and ends up with two products. An element takes the place of another element that’s in a compound.
18 Single Replacement 2Al + 3CuCl2 3Cu + 2AlCl3 Aluminum foil is placed in a solution of copper II chloride which produces copper metal and aluminum chloride solution.2Al + 3CuCl2 3Cu + 2AlCl3
19 Double ReplacementA double-replacement reaction starts with two reactants and ends up with two products. In this case both reactants and products are compounds. They simply change partners.
20 Double Replacement 2NaCl + Pb(NO3)2 2NaNO3 + PbCl2 A solution of sodium chloride is mixed with a solution of lead nitrate resulting in the production of sodium nitrate and lead chloride.2NaCl + Pb(NO3)2 2NaNO3 + PbCl2
21 CombustionA combustion reaction always involves a hydrocarbon and oxygen as reactants and ends up with carbon dioxide and water as products.
