Chemical Reaction

A chemical reaction is composed of REACTANTS and PRODUCTS. The starting compounds and/or elements in the reaction are known as reactants. Once they are combined, the resulting elements/compounds are called the products.

Basically:

Reactant ---> Product

Or:

Reactant 1 + Reactant 2 ---> Product 1 + Product 2

Example:

Magnesium Chloride + Lithium Floride ----> Lithium Choride + Magnesium Fluoride

MgCl2 + LiF = LiCl + MgF2
