Cagg Chapter 8 Notes Section 8.1 • Chemical reaction: a process that doesn’t create or destroy atoms. • Chemical equations: use symbols to tell what is happening in a chemical reaction. v Interpreting and Writing a Chemical Equation • Reactant: the chemical species that is on the left of the arrow. • Product: the chemical species that is on the right of the arrow. Products are what form in the process of a chemical reaction. • Aqueous: chemical species that are dissolved in water. • Metals in chemical equations: their empirical formulas are used to represent them. - Example: Iron would be “Fe” • Nonmetals in chemical equations: the molecular formula is generally used. - Example: H
