Today we will continue to learn about ways to classify chemical reactions.  Spotting patterns in reactivity helps us to understand reactions and make predictions about mixtures.  You will know you have succeeded in learning this topic when you can do the following:

  • identify multiple reaction descriptions for an observed reaction
  • assign oxidation states to atoms in compounds
  • identify which species is oxidized and reduced in a redox reaction
  • apply flame testing to determine gases present from reaction products


  • HW Check 69 (Lab 5.3 feedback on peergrade)
  • Warm Up 69
  1. For the following combinations, write a balanced molecular equation, including states.
    • silver metal and sulfuric acid
    • calcium is burned in air
    • potassium acetate and barium chlorate solutions
    • mercury(I) nitrate and sodium sulfate solutions
  2. For the reactions in part (i), determine if the reaction does occur.  If so, identify the types of reactions and if not, justify how you know it doesn’t react.
