We all are living in a science world. Everything has some kind of reaction going on in our living area. It is just we do not get to see or realize that where n how we having our life much easier than it used to be. In these writing assignments, the topic is about the organic chemistry. In organic chemistry, we all have different kinds of compounds. In addition, alkanes, alkenes, and alkynes are the parts of the organic and inorganic compounds. We also can learn about the structural formula they all have in different form. Polymerization is another type of chemical reaction that we get to know. There is also a difference between the saturated and unsaturated compounds. All distinguish particular compounds have all kind of formula, structural form, and many other ways to prove of the chemical reaction. By doing a research paper, we all get to learn about the organic chemistry. Organic chemistry is the chemistry that involves the study of organic carbon compounds that contain, primarily, carbon and hydrogen. Whereas the organic compound can contain other elements, the bond between carbon and hydrogen are what makes a compound organic. The original organic chemistry was defined the study of compounds by living organisms. Inorganic chemistry is the chemistry that deals with the properties and behavior of inorganic compounds. Inorganic compounds are those that are not biological, and not containing any hydrogen and carbon bonds. We can state that inorganic chemistry is any type of chemistry that is not organic chemistry. (P.S. Jones, & Conjecture Corporation, 2003-2011). The distinguish between organic and inorganic compounds used to be that organic compounds affect from the activity of living beings, whereas inorganic compounds are the result of natural processes to any unrelated life form or the result of human

    What is chemical change? Chemical change is the alteration of a substance into one or more different substances with different properties (also called chemical reaction). The four different types of chemial reations are synthesis, decomposition, single displacement, and double displacement. Synthesis is when atoms and/or molecules combine to form larger molecules. Decomposition is when a large molecules are split into elements or smaller molecules. Single Displacement has an element and a compound as reactants and one element replaces another element to form a new compound. Double displacement has two compounds as reactants and the elments in each compound exchange places. The way to test the presence of oxygen gas is by putting a glowing splint of a match in a substance that may contain oxygen. The evidence resercher look for oxygen gas is if the splint lights up. The way to test the presence of hydrogen gas is by using a burning splint. The evidence resercher look for hydrogen gas if the gas makes a “popping” sound. The way to test the presence of carbon dioxide gas is its reaction with limewater. The eveidence resercher look for carbon dioxide gas is if the reaction with the limewater forms a milky-white precipitate. The way to tell if a chemical change has occurred are colour change, light formed or has been seen, precipitate formed, and/or change in temperature.…
