Question 16 16. If a scientist induces a chemical reaction, and finds that the reactants and products exist in a single phase, then what did the scientist observe?

Question 17 17. What molecule in our bodies is a catalyst?

Question 18 18. Suppose you were teaching a science class to middle school students. Because you want to show them an impressive chemical reaction, you decide to dissolve zinc in hydrochloric acid.
