Study Guide for Chem 1 Exam over Chapter 4  Chemical Equations o Reactants on left side, products on right side o Know how to create them from symbols into words and words into symbols o Include physical states – gas, liquid, solid, aqueous  Water is not aqueous, it is a liquid o Know how to balance equations  Equations must be balanced to obey law of conservation of mass o Identify types of reactions:  Synthesis - two or more combine to form a product  Decomposition – one reactant forms two or more products  Combustion – substance burns in the presence of oxygen and produces CO2 and H2O  Double Displacement – can be a precipitation reaction or a molecular product  Single Displacement – a solid metal exchanges to produce a different solid metal, hydrogen, or halogen  Neutralization – acid/base to get a salt and water  Condensation – two molecules combine and water is released o Electrolytes – a substance that dissolves in water to yield a solution that conducts electricity  Ionization – a molecular compound forms ions when dissolved  Strong electrolytes dissociates completely, weak electrolytes don’t  Precipitate Reactions o Memorize solubility rules o Write out molecular ionic equations and net ionic equations o Know how to find the precipitate of a reaction  Acid/Base Reactions o Know strong acids and strong bases  Strong Acids: HCl, HBr, HI, HNO3, H2SO4, HClO4  Strong Bases: LiOH, NaOH, KOH, Ca(OH)2, Ba(OH)2, Sr(OH)2  Strong acids and strong bases are strong electrolytes o Different types of acids  Bronsted acids are proton donors  Bronsted bases are proton acceptors o Be able to create neutralization reactions  Redox Reactions – a chemical reaction in which electrons are transferred from one reactant to another o Oxidation is the loss of electrons o Reduction is the gain of electrons o Assign oxidation numbers o Know oxidation rules o Activity Series  Understand how metal activity series work  Predict reactions from series o Identify if a reaction is redox and balance it o Label oxidizing and reducing agents  Mole Ratios and Chemical Reactions o Convert mass/moles to other compounds through balanced chemical equations  Limiting Reagents o The reactant first used up in a chemical equation is the limiting reagent o Use product method to determine limiting reagent and excess reagent o Know how to go backwards to figure out the amount of excess reagent left over o Percent Yield  Theoretical yield – amount of product that forms when all the limiting reactants react to form the desired product (calculated)  Actual yield – the product actually produced from a reaction (experiment)  Percent yield – tells what percentage the actual yield is of the theoretical yield  Know how to calculate theoretical yield, actual yield, and percent yield  Know how to do problems with an impure reagent  Titrations and Gravimetric Analysis o Be able to do titration calculations o Figure out missing molarity o Calculations with solution stoichiometry
