# Word equations

• Word and symbol equations have the form $$reactants \rightarrow products$$
• An example would be magnesium and oxygen:
• $$magnesium + oxygen \rightarrow magnesium\ oxide$$
• Word equations can also be constructed from descriptions
• An example would be:
• Copper oxide was added to hot sulfuric acid and it reacted to give a blue solution of copper sulfate and water
• $$copper\ oxide + sulfuric\ acid \rightarrow copper\ sulfate + water$$
