Types of Reactions
Perform all the reactions listed in the procedure and write your observations for each: write either the evidence for a
reaction (such as bubbles, heat, precipitate, changed from blue to yellow etc.) or NR for “No Reaction”.
For each reaction that
was observed to occur
write out the formulas for reactants and resulting products, and balance each chemical equation.
Use appropriate state labels (“s” for solid, “aq” for aqueous solution, etc).
(NOTE: you may need to consult solubility rules in
order to determine what the solid is that forms in some exchange reactions).
For reactants that you observe to NOT REACT,
write out just the reactant formulas
and then write “NR” after the arrow to signify “no reaction.”
For each reaction that occurred, classify the reaction type using the following initials:
for Metathesis, and
for Single Displacement.
