Today we will learn about decomposition reaction.
2H2 02 --- 2H2+O2 is the equation we are going to look at.
2H2 O2 --- 2H2+O2
You can see that all it really does is break a reactant into two or more products.
We learned synthesis last time. If you think about it, decomposition is the exact opposite.
Teacher! Didn't you say something about balancing equation?
Ah! Yes, I did. If they don't have the same amount then they are not equal. In order to do make them equal is, one you can add a coeeficient or add a subscript. So when they multiply, both sides would be equal.
