We've been spending a lot of time working on problems involving chemical reactions. But, what does this really have to do with everyday life?
For example, the gasoline you put in your car is made up of a solution of different liquid hydrocarbon fuels (octane, ethanol and others). When your car engine burns these fuels for energy to make the car move, a combustion reaction occurs. Carbon dioxide and water are produced as this reaction occurs and these products are expelled through the tailpipe into the atmosphere.
For each of the other different type of chemical reactions (double replacement, single replacement, composition, decomposition), describe a real life application in a similar manner as I have done above. Be as specific as you can but remember, your writing needs to "make sense" to the general public (the rest of us who are reading your post). Yet, you need to address the science concepts we have been discussing in class.
PLEASE also be SURE to include your name on the post....I need to know who you are!
