Unit 7: Rearranging Atoms
Key Learning Targets
(7.01c) I can identify the type of reaction taking place based on substances reacting
(7.02c) I can write a complete chemical reaction given the reactants or products
(7.03c) I can balance a chemical reaction based on the reaction equation
(7.04c) I can represent a balanced chemical equation using a particle diagram
(7.05c) I can describe endothermic and exothermic reactions in terms of storage or release of chemical potential energy.
Chemical Reaction Demonstrations
Miss a day of class or lab, watch these demonstration videos to help you catch up.
Highlights from Periodic Videos
Fe + O2 -> FeO
Fe + S -> FeS
Al + Cl2 -> AlCl3
