Reversible Reactions

Year 10 were back in the Chemistry lab again after exam week. They are learning about reversible reactions and how you can represent them in a chemical equation. The class looked at some colourful examples of reversible reactions.

It was fascinating to see the colours change so dramatically during the forward reaction only to then change completely back to the original colour in the reverse reaction. Some really interesting observations were made of ammonium chloride reactions and the pupils could identify exothermic and endothermic, thermal decomposition, and neutralisation reactions all in the same lesson. Some very impressive Chemistry Year 10!
