  • Section 1 – Keywords Section 2 – Types of Reactions

    Physical Change – Changes of state

    Chemical Change – You can tell if a chemical reaction has occurred

    because one of the following will happen: Colour change; Fizzing (gas

    being produced); Temperature change; Producing light

    Section 3 – Energy Changes

    During a chemical reaction, the first thing that happens is that chemical

    bonds in the reactants are broken. Then bonds are made in the

    products – the new chemicals.

    Reaction profiles, or energy level diagrams, shows whether a reaction

    is exothermic or endothermic. It shows the energy in the reactants and

    products, and the difference in energy between them. We move from

    the left to the right along the diagram.

    Section 4 – Catalysts

    Catalysts work by reducing the amount of energy needed to break the

    bonds in the reactants. This means the reaction can happen more

    quickly because less energy is being absorbed. The energy change of

    the reaction is unchanged.

    Chapter 11 – Chemical Energy

    • Catalysts: Substances that speed up chemical reactions but are

    unchanged at the end.

    • Exothermic reaction: One in which energy is given out, usually as

    heat or light e.g. Respiration, Neutralisation, Hand Warmers

    • Endothermic reaction: One in which energy is taken in, usually as

    heat e.g. Photosynthesis, Thermal Decomposition, Cool Packs

    • Chemical bond: Force that holds atoms together in molecules.

    • Physical change : A reaction that is reversible and does not

    involve new chemicals being made e.g. a change of stage

    • Chemical change: A reaction that is usually impossible to reverse

    and involves new chemicals being made e.g. combustion




  • Section 1 – Keywords Section 2 – Types of Reaction

    • Combustion:

    • In order for a fire to start three things are required, oxygen,

    heat and a fuel. If you remove any of these then the fire will

    go out.

    • When we burn a fuel in oxygen, carbon dioxide and water

    are produced.

    • Alcohols are often used as fuels because they are liquids,

    so are easy to transport and store, they burn easily and

    they release lots of energy.

    • Thermal decomposition is when a single reactant breaks down into

    two or more products using heat.

    • Mass is conserved in every reaction where the system is closed

    (the products have not escaped)

    Chapter 12 – Types of Reaction

    • Fuel: Stores energy in a chemical store which it can release as


    • Chemical reaction: A change in which a new substance is formed.

    • Physical change: One that changes the physical properties of a

    substance, but no new substance is formed.

    • Reactants: Substances that react together, shown before the

    arrow in an equation.

    • Products: Substances formed in a chemical reaction, shown after

    the reaction arrow in an equation.

    • Conserved: When the quantity of something does not change after

    a process takes place.

    Section 3 – Balancing Equations

    We know from studying our law of conservation of mass, that atoms cannot be made or destroyed, therefore every chemical equation must

    be balanced.

    Rules for balancing equations: You can never change the little numbers; You must only balance the equation by placing big numbers in

    front; The number of atoms of both elements must be equal.

    How to balance an equation:

    1. Draw a line under the equation using a ruler. Draw a vertical line down from the arrow.

    2. Underneath the line, on the left hand side write out the elements present.

    3. Count the number of atoms of each element in each compound. Right this below the compounds.

    4. Check if it is balanced on the left hand side and right hand side of the equation.

    5. If it is not balanced then you increase the number of atoms of each element by multiplying the number of molecules.

    6. Readjust your number of atoms and see if the equation is now balanced.

    7. Repeat the process until the equation is balanced.

    8. Rewrite the final equation.

  • Section 1 – Keywords

    • Aerobic respiration: Breaking down glucose with oxygen to

    release energy and producing carbon dioxide and water.

    • Anaerobic respiration (fermentation): Releasing energy from the

    breakdown of glucose without oxygen, producing lactic acid (in

    animals) and ethanol and carbon dioxide (in plants and


    • Fertilisers: Chemicals containing minerals that plants need to

    build new tissues.

    • Photosynthesis: A process where plants and algae turn carbon

    dioxide and water into glucose and release oxygen.

    • Chlorophyll: Green pigment in plants and algae which absorbs

    light energy.

    • Stomata: Pores in the bottom of a leaf which open and close to let

    gases in and out.

    Section 2 – Equations

    Aerobic Respiration – with oxygen GO COW

    Glucose + oxygen  Carbon dioxide + water ( + energy)

    C6H12O6 + 6O2  6CO2 + 6H2O

    Anaerobic Respiration – without oxygen

    In animals: Glucose  Lactic acid ( + some energy)

    In plants and microorganisms: Glucose  Ethanol + Carbon Dioxide

    C6H12O6 2C2H6O + 2CO2

    Photosynthesis – only occurs in plants COW GO

    Carbon dioxide + water  Glucose + oxygen

    6CO2 + 6H2O  C6H12O6 + 6O2

    Section 3 – Respiration

    • Aerobic respiration occurs when there is plenty of oxygen so

    glucose can be broken down fully into carbon dioxide and water

    and lots of energy is released.

    • In some situations organisms may not be receiving enough oxygen

    so they instead respire anaerobically which still produces some

    energy but far less. In animals anaerobic respiration produces the

    toxic chemical lactic acid which causes cramp; however in plants

    and microorganisms ethanol (which makes beer alcoholic) and

    carbon dioxide (which makes bread rise) are produced instead.

    • For any more information watch this video:

    Section 4 – Photosynthesis

    • In order to grow plants need: carbon dioxide (for photosynthesis),

    oxygen (for respiration), light (to provide energy for

    photosynthesis), water (for respiration), as well as space to grow

    and nutrients from the soil

    • Plants have specially adapted leaves which have chloroplasts

    containing the green pigment chlorophyll to absorb as much light

    as possible and stomata to let gases in and out.

    • Plants have specially adapted roots with tiny root hair cells to

    absorb as much water as required and all of the nutrients they

    need to make the plant healthy.

    • The water is moved around a plant in xylem vessels by a process

    called transpiration

    • Glucose is dissolved and transported around the plant in phloem

    vessels in a process called translocation

    • Glucose is used in respiration, building the cellulose cell wall and

    any left over is stored as starch.
