What is a Chemical Reaction?

scientia-153

  • A physical change, such as a state change or dissolving, does not create a new substance, but a chemical change does.
  • In a chemical reaction, the atoms and molecules that interact with each other are called reactants.
  • In a chemical reaction, the atoms and molecules produced by the reaction are called products.
  • In a chemical reaction, only the atoms present in the reactants can end up in the products. No new atoms are created, and no atoms are destroyed.
  • In a chemical reaction, reactants contact each other, bonds between atoms in the reactants are broken, and atoms rearrange and form new bonds to make the products.
