Chemical Reactions

Chemical reaction is a process by which one or more substances may be transformed into one or more new substances. In a chemical reaction, energy may be released or absorbed, but there is no loss in total molecular weight. The reacting substances, called reactants, lose their characteristic chemical properties after the reaction. Moreover, the new substances formed after a chemical reaction usually differ from the original substances in the energy they contain.

Five Major Chemical Reactions
Grade: 8 - 12
Chemistry lesson explaining the five major types of chemical reactions: synthesis, decomposition, single displacement, double displacement, and combustion.

Junior Chemistry: Compounds, part 1
Grade: 8 - 12
Chemistry lesson about compounds - binary ionic compounds.

Junior Chemistry: Compounds, part 2
Grade: 8 - 12
Chemistry lesson about compounds - how to write formulae with polyatomic species.

Junior Chemistry: Compounds, part 3
Grade: 8 - 12
Chemistry lesson about chemical bonding - learn all the basic shapes for 4, 3, and 2 effective pairs around the central atom.

Junior Chemistry: Compounds, part 4
Grade: 8 - 12
Chemistry lesson about compounds - learn about acid nomenclature.

Junior Chemistry: Balancing, part 1
Grade: 8 - 12
Chemistry lesson about balancing simple composition and decomposition reactions.

Junior Chemistry: Balancing, part 2
Grade: 8 - 12
Learn how to balance a hydrocarbon combustion reaction in this presentation.

Junior Chemistry: Balancing, part 3
Grade: 8 - 12
Learn about balancing single replacement reactions in this presentation.

Balancing Chemical Equations
Grade: 8 - 12
The video explains the basics of balancing chemical reactions.

Guide to Balancing Chemical Equations
Grade: 8 - 12
The lesson explains the concepts behind balancing chemical equations. It shows you how to change coefficients to balance the atoms in reactants and products.

Ionic and Covalent Bonding Animation
Grade: 8 - 12
Learn about ionic and covalent bonding. Ionic bonding is formed when one atom has sufficient strength of attraction to remove ion from the other atom. Covalent bonding occurs when neither atom has sufficient strength to remove the other atom's electron. They would instead share electrons to form stable configurations of electrons.
