TYPES OF CHEMICAL REACTIONS DESIGN LAB Chemical reactions can be classified in many ways. One classification system involves five general types of reactions: combustion, synthesis, decomposition, single replacement, and double replacement. In this experiment you will investigate these different types of reactions by predicting the products of each reaction and using experimental evidence to test those predictions. SAFETY Use precaution when lighting and operating the gas burner. When heating test tube contents, aim the mouth of the test tube AWAY from yourself and others. Do NOT look directly at burning magnesium. The intense light may damage your eyes. Avoid direct contact with solutions. If skin contact does occur, flush the affected area with water. PROBLEM Do the rules for predicting reaction products really work? Specifically, are the rules valid for determining whether or not single and double replacement reactions will occur? The reactions for combustion, synthesis, and decomposition have been chosen for you. You will perform two reactions each for single and double replacement. For each single replacement
