1

What is a synthesis reaction

2 or more reactants combine to produce a new product.

2

Decomposition

A compound breaks down into 2 or more similar compounds or elements.

3

Single displacement

One element takes the place of another element in a compound.

Can be metal or non metal displacement

4

Double displacement

The cations of 2 different compounds exchange places forming 2 new compounds.

5

General equation for a synthesis reaction.

X+Y-->XY

6

General equation for a decomposition reaction

XY---->X+Y

7

General equation for single displacement reactions

A+BX-->AX+B

8

General equation for a double displacement reaction

AX+BY--->BX+AY

9

Is bromine gas a compound

No it's a diatomic molecule so only one element is involved.
