Ch 9: Glencoe Chemistry - Matter And Change Chapter 9: Chemical Reactions

About This Chapter

The Chemical Reactions chapter of this Glencoe Chemistry - Matter and Change companion course helps students learn the essential chemistry lessons of chemical reactions. Each of these simple and fun video lessons is about five minutes long and is sequenced to align with the Chemical Reactions textbook chapter.

How it works:

  • Identify the lessons in Glencoe Chemistry's Chemical Reactions chapter with which you need help.
  • Find the corresponding video lessons within this companion course chapter.
  • Watch fun videos that cover the types of chemical reactions you need to learn or review.
  • Complete the quizzes to test your understanding.
  • If you need additional help, re-watch the videos until you've mastered the material or submit a question for one of our instructors.

Students will learn:

  • Combustion reactions
  • Decomposition reactions
  • Synthesis reactions
  • Single displacement reactions
  • Composition of solutions

Chemical Reactions and Balancing Chemical Equations

1. Chemical Reactions and Balancing Chemical Equations

In this lesson, you'll learn how to balance a chemical reaction equation using the conservation of matter law. You'll also learn how to write both word and formula equations, what the subscripts after a letter mean and what the numbers in front of compounds mean.

Writing and Balancing Combustion Reactions

2. Writing and Balancing Combustion Reactions

Discover what a combustion reaction is as well as what reactants are needed and what products are produced. Learn to write and balance a combustion reaction. Through the concepts of bond energies, learn how to explain why combustion reactions are largely exothermic.

Decomposition and Synthesis Reactions

3. Decomposition and Synthesis Reactions

Learn how to write, identify and predict the products of simple synthesis and decomposition reactions. This includes the composition of reactions with oxygen, of two metals, and of metals with nonmetals, as well as the decomposition of metal carbonates, metal chlorates and metal hydroxides.

The Activity Series: Predicting Products of Single Displacement Reactions

4. The Activity Series: Predicting Products of Single Displacement Reactions

Discover what a single replacement reaction is and how to identify it. Learn what chemical activity is, how that applies to an activity series table and how to predict the product of a single replacement reaction by referring to the activity series.

Solutions, Solutes, and Solvents

5. Solutions, Solutes, and Solvents

Oh no! Your friend Ben just drank chili oil on a dare, and now his mouth is burning. Should he drink the ice water or vegetable oil to cool his mouth? Quick. Watch this lesson if you aren't sure.

Precipitation Reactions: Predicting Precipitates and Net Ionic Equations

6. Precipitation Reactions: Predicting Precipitates and Net Ionic Equations

Learn what a precipitate is and predict when it will form in an aqueous chemical reaction, usually a double-replacement reaction. Learn what an ionic equation is, how it differs from a net ionic equation and how to write a net ionic equation.
