More Lessons for Chemistry
This is a series of lectures in videos covering Chemistry topics taught in schools.
Single Displacement Reactions Part 1
The following episode looks at the type of reaction called Single Displacement reactions. These reactions involve single molecules in the reactants and a different single molecule in the products. Keep in mind that if a metal is single in the reactants, the other metal will become single in the products (AS LONG AS if it follows the Activity series for metals). If a non-metal is single in the reactants , the other non-metal will be single in the products. Don't forget the cross over rule when writing the ionic compound.
Single Displacement Reactions Part 2
Double Displacement Reactions
The following episode looks at Double Displacement reactions. Keep in mind that metals pair with non-metals. Therefore, metals switch places with one another.
The following episode looks at Neutralization reactions. All Neutralization reactions involve an acid and a base for the reactants and water and salt (ANY ionic compound) are produced as products. Refer to episodes on Acids and Bases, Double Displacement Reactions as well as Balancing Equations for addition help within this topic.
The following episode looks at both Complete and Incomplete Combustion reactions. Both types involve burning hydrocarbons (compounds that contain H and C ONLY) in the presence of oxygen. The products that are formed are carbon dioxide and water. However, in addition to those products, carbon monoxide and carbon are produced during INCOMPLETE combustion reactions.
