One similarity between synthesis and decomposition is they are both a type of metabolism.

Synthesis and decomposition reactions are opposites. Synthesis: A + B -> C Decomposition: C -> A + B They both involve three elements or compounds, one of which is a combination of the other two. An example: N2O5 -> NO2 + NO3 Is a decomposition reaction.

There are four common types of chemical reactions. 1. Synthesis Reactions A+B->AB This kind of reactions build or synthesize things. An example would be building protons from amino acids. 2. Decomposition Reactions AB->A+B These are mostly catabolic reactions. An example would be digesting food. 3. Exchange Reactions AB + CD -> AD + CB These exchange parts and make a new chemical compound. 4. Reversible Reaction A+B <-> AB Chemical compounds can be both made and broken down. ADD: synthesis, decomposition, single replacement, and double replacement

They're both types of chemical reactions. In a decomposition reaction one compound is broken into two parts. Ex) HCl yields H + Cl In a synthesis reaction the opposite happens. You begin with two elements or compounds and end with one product. Ex) K + I yields KI These are obviously simplified versions but they convey the point.

A synthesis reaction is where two (or more) chemicals or elements combine to create one new product. A decomposition reaction is the opposite meaning it is when one compound is broken down into the 2 (or more) compounds/elements it is made up of. Both of these refer to compounds, not mixtures. Mixtures cannot have synthesis or decomposition reactions. The difference between a compound and a mixture is that a compound is chemically bonded together at the atomic level while a mixture is just mixed together.

Two new tandem reactions for the synthesis of 3,5-disubstituted pyrrolizidines and the first total synthesis of alkaloidcis-223B (in 7 steps and 43% overall yield).

its decomposing ? its kind of hard to explain its like coke and pepsi its the same but it differs its decomposing ? its kind of hard to explain its like coke and pepsi its the same but it differs they are both chemical reactions

Basically, the light-trapping reactions trap sunlight within them. The products of these reactions are glucose and chlorophyll. These products are coupled to the synthesis of carbohydrates because when carbohydrates are synthesized, glucose is created. Both reactions have a product of glucose. This is how they are related/coupled.

They both come up with two different compounds/elements then the original compound/element.

Endothermic reactions and Exothermic reaction are never the same. They are both different. Definitions Endothermic:- reactions that take in energy. For example:- electrolysis, thermal decomposition and the reaction between ethanic acid and sodium carbonate. Exothermic:- reactions that transfer energy to the surroundings. For example:- burning, neutralisation and the reaction between water and calcium oxide.

Explosions are a form of either combustion or decomposition (or both) reactions, and they are chemical changes.

both, depending on circumstances

Catabolic and anabolic reactions are metabolic processes. Both the capture and use of energy by organisms involves a series of thousands of reactions (metabolism). A catabolic reaction is one that breaks down large molecules to produce energy; an example is digestion. An anabolic reaction is one that involves creating large molecules out of smaller molecules; an example is when your body makes fat out of extra nutrients you eat.

Yes, they [both] do. In particular, nuclear Rna synthesis takes place in the Nucleoli.

no , they are not the same . cracking involves bonds such as alkanes (single bonds) and alkenes (double bonds) , these are broke down into more use full resourcefull chains , this is called cracking . thermal decomposition is the decomposition of something being heated up , so lets say for example - calcium carbonate (when heated) = calcium oxide +carbon dioxide , this is the word equation for thermal decomposition . so yes yu could refer both of them to being alike

They both are words that react to reactions lololo.

User Avatar

if you mean decomposition, it can do both

Living things have cellular reactions which involve both reactions in the process. Endothermic reactions help the body conserve energy or contain it. Exothermic reactions help the body produce energy.

Both catabolic and anabolic reactions classify into the Subjects Biochemistry and Cellular Genetics. They both involve reactants and products. An example of biochemical substances that carry out both catabolic and anabolic Biochemical Reactions are 'the Enzymes in our [Cellularly Composed] Bodies'.
