Unit 5 Combustion: An Introduction to Chemical Reactions

Study Guide for Unit 5 is located here.

BOOM. We will investigate everyone's favorite type of chemical reaction: combustion. Through combustion reactions, we will understand some of principles that allow us to quantify what is happening. To be discussed: balancing chemical reactions, law of conservation of mass, molar ratios, mole-to-to stoichometry, limiting and excess reactants.
