1. What is the formula of the reaction product when sodium reacts with iodine?

2. What are the formulas of the products when nitric acid, HNO3, reacts with aluminum hydroxide, Al(OH)3?

3. Give the formulas of the acid and the base that must be used to make the salt, (NH4)2SO4.

4. Balance the equation for the reaction of copper(II) hydroxide, Cu(OH)2, with hydrochloric acid, HCl.

5. Balance the following equation for the reaction of lithium with nitrogen (lowest whole number coefficients).

6. Balance the following equation for the reaction of iron with bromine (lowest whole number coefficients).

7. Balance the following equation for the reaction of iron(III) hydroxide with sulfuric acid.

8. Reactions may be classified in several ways, for example:

  • Combination reaction
  • Acid-base reaction
  • Precipitate-forming reaction
  • Gas-producing reaction
  • Oxidation-reduction reaction
  • Decomposition reaction

Give the types of each of the following reactions. Some reactions can be classified in more than one way; give all of the types that are applicable. Equations are not balanced. a. P4O6   (s) + O2   (g) ---> P4O10   (s)

b. H2SO4   (aq) + Ba(NO3)2   (aq) ---> BaSO4   (s) + HNO3   (aq)

c. NH4Cl (s) + NaOH (aq) ---> NaCl (aq) + H2O (l) + NH3   (g)

d. Al (s) + HCl (aq) ---> AlCl3   (aq) + H2   (g)

e. NO2   (g) ---> NO (g) + O2   (g)

f. Zn(OH)2   (s) + HCl (aq) ---> ZnCl2   (aq) + H2O (l)

g. Na2SO4.10H2O (s) ---> Na2SO4   (s) + H2O (g)

h. Cu (s) + S8   (s) ---> Cu2S (s)
