Short Answer : Answer the questions in the space provided.
9. In the chemical reaction shown below, which is the Reactant and which is the Product?
C12H22O11 + H2O  C6H12O6 + C6H12O6
10. What role do catalysts play in chemical reactions?
11. What does a two-direction arrow indicate in a chemical equation?
12. In the chemical reaction shown below, which substance is reduced and which substance is
Na + Cl  Na+ + Cl13. Sucrose, or table sugar, can react with water to form two other compounds, glucose and
fructose. However, when you add sugar to a glass of water, this reaction proceeds extremely
slowly. Why does it proceed slowly, and what else is needed to speed up the reaction.
Structure and Function : Use the figure to answer the following questions.
The graph below represents the energy changes that occur as a chemical reaction progress.
14. What is represented by arrow A?
15. What is represented by arrow B?
16. Is energy absorbed or released in this reaction? Explain your answer.
