Unsaturated solution
1. What is the general form of a chemical reaction equation?
2. Where is the chemical energy in a compound found?
3. Draw a reaction energy diagram for an endothermic and exothermic reaction. Label the
position of the reactants, products and energy barrier.
4. For the reactions in #3, write out a general chemical equation that includes energy.
5. How does concentration, temperature and particle size affect the rate of a reaction?
6. How would a catalyst change the reaction energy diagrams you drew in question #3?
7. What are the four types of reactions that we discussed in class and how can each type be

11. What happens to the freezing and boiling point of a solvent when a solute is dissolved in it?
12. What is true about temperature during a phase change?
13. Sketch a heating curve for a substance that melts at -20C and boils at 50C. Label the phases
that are present at each interval.
14. How are volume and shape described for solids, liquids and gases in terms of the particles in
