Content description
Chemical reactions, including combustion and the reactions of acids, are important in both non-living and living systems and involve energy transfer
Elaborations
  1. investigating reactions of acids with metals, bases, and carbonates
  2. investigating a range of different reactions to classify them as exothermic or endothermic
  3. recognising the role of oxygen in combustion reactions and comparing combustion with other oxidation reactions
  4. comparing respiration and photosynthesis and their role in biological processes
  5. describing how the products of combustion reactions affect the environment
