Lesson 16

Combining Capacity and Word Equations

Combining Capacity

The combining capacity is the amount of electrons (cars in the garage) an atom needs to make it a stable octet (eight electrons on it's outer shell - this is different for hydrogen)

Word Equations

The left side of the chemical reactions are the "reactants" whereas the right side are the "products"
The following website "sums up" all of the information I have on word equations - http://www.nelsonthornes.com/secondary/science/scinet/scinet/reaction/collis/word.htm
