Chemical Reactions To be correct, the equation that represents a chemical reaction must conserve both mass and charge, i.e., it must be balanced. Chemical reactions fall into two major categories: 1. Electron transfer: change in oxidation state of one or more elements in the reaction. Called red uction and ox idation: Called Redox reactions 2. No electron transfer: No change in oxidation state. Types of Reactions - Part I. Combination Reactions Decomposition Reactions Combustion Reactions

Elemental Combination (redox): Two or more substances react to form one product. For prediction purposes, the positive oxidation state species is usually in the product and is usually in the highest positive oxidation state for that element [sulfur (S) is an exception]. Decomposition Reactions : One reactant reacts to produce two or more products (the reverse of combination rxns).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
