Naming types of Reactions for Equations
i already solved the equations but still need help naming types of reactions for these equations. please help me,thanks!
1) Mg + Br2 ----> MgBr2
2) BaCl2 + CuSO4 ----> BaSO4 + CuCl2
3) Na2O + H2O ----> 2NaOH
4) MgSO4.7H2O ----> MgSO4 + 7H2O
A general thing to look for is oxidation numbers, this will tell you whether or not you have a redox reaction or not. Another thing to know is your solubilities; what ions form precipitates in solutions? A third type of reaction is the formation of a gas such as H2S or H2CO3 (H2O + CO2). Acid/Base reactions are always good to look for.
Make sure when you do your molecular equations that you have the phases of each compound as this information is important.
5 main type of reactions
Double replacement AB + CD --> AD + CB
Single Replacement A + BX --> B + AX
Synthesis A + B --> AB
Decomposition AB --> A + B
Combustion Rxn with O2
