Section 1.4 CHEMICAL CHANGES - REACTIONS - reactants and products Heating iron and sulphur is classic chemistry experiment to illustrate what is meant by CHEMICAL CHANGE and you can adapt the general conclusions described at the end of this section to any chemical reaction.
A mixture of silvery grey iron filings and yellow sulphur powder is made. The iron can be plucked out with a magnet i.e. an easily achieved physical separation because the iron and sulphur are not chemically combined yet! They are still the same iron and sulphur. However, on heating the mixture, it eventually glows red on its own and a dark grey solid called iron sulphide is formed. We no longer have iron or sulphur BUT a new compound with different physical properties (e.g. colour) and chemical properties (unlike iron which forms hydrogen with acids, iron sulphide forms toxic nasty smelling hydrogen sulphide!).
Iron + sulphur (sulfur) ==> iron sulphide (iron sulfide) or in symbols: Fe + S ==> FeS change in mass e.g. IGCSE/GCSE CHEMISTRY study REVISION NOTES student exam revising help doc brown iphone ipad notepad notebook netbook epad tablet android.
