Chemistry Objectives: Chemical Reactions
Chapter 10
1. C1.1C Conduct scientific investigations using
appropriate tools and techniques (e.g. selecting
an instrument that measure the desired
quantity—length, volume, weight, time interval,
temperature—with the appropriate level of
precision) (Temperature Probe Lab)
2. Write a proper skeleton equation to represent a
given reaction
3. Given a skeleton equation, write a word
4. List those elements which exist as diatomic
5. C5.2C Represent chemical equations using
6. C5.2A Balance simple chemical equations
applying the conservation of matter
7. C5.6b Classify reactions as synthesis,
combustion, decomposition, single replacement,
or double replacement
Revised 1-09
8. Predict the products of a reaction and write a
balanced chemical equation, given the reactants.
9. C5.2B Distinguish between chemical and
physical changes in terms of the properties of the
reactants and products (Chemical reactions in
aqueous solutions will produce a precipitate,
water, or gas)
10. C3.3c Explain why it is necessary for a
molecule to absorb energy to break a chemical
11. C3.1b, C3.4d Draw enthalpy diagrams for
exothermic and endothermic reactions that
include enthalpies for reactants, products and
activation energies.
12. C3.4B Use energy diagrams to explain why
chemical reactions will either release or absorb
13. C2.3a Explain how temperature and
activation energy affect the rate of a chemical
Revised 1-09
14. C2.3b Explain how an exothermic reaction
can have a very slow rate.
15. C3.2a Describe the energy changes in
photosynthesis and in the combustion of sugar in
terms of bonds breaking and bond making.
