Unformatted text preview: When ionic compounds dissolve in water, their ions separate from each other, or (6) . 3 3. 4. 5. 6. Chemical Reactions ❛❛A chemical reaction is the process by which atoms or molecules interact to form or to break❜❜ chemical bonds. Using the terms provided, complete these statements: ATP Decomposition Equilibrium Exchange Heat Kinetic Potential Products Reactants Released Reversible Synthesis The atoms or molecules present before the chemical reaction occurs are the (1) and those that result from the chemical reaction are the (2) . When two or more atoms, ions, or molecules combine to form a larger, more complex product, the process is called a(n) (3) reaction, whereas in a (4) reaction, reactants are broken down into smaller, less complex products. A(n) (5) reaction is a combination of a decomposition and a synthesis reaction. In a (6) reaction, the reaction can proceed from reactants to products and products to reactants. When the rate of product formation and reactant formation are equal, the reaction is said to be at...
