  Chemical reaction - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A chemical reaction is a process involving one, two or more substances (called reactants), characterized by a chemical change and yielding one or more product(s) which are different from the reactants.
Classically, chemical reactions encompass changes that strictly involve the motion of electrons, although the general concept of a chemical reaction (in particular the notion of a chemical equation) is applicable to transformations of elementary particles, as well as nuclear reactions.
Chemical equilibrium is the state in which the forward and reverse reaction rates are equal, thus preserving the amount of reactants and products.

 Distinction between Chemical and Physical Changes
Chemical reactions involve changing the materials that you're dealing with into new materials, and the changes that you see are the result of the appearance of the new materials.
But the physical changes are changes in the condition of the material or changes caused by mixing materials together or taking them apart--just mixing or separating, not the creation of something new.
Physical changes and chemical changes have much in common in that you are looking at similar kinds of results.

 Jill Kesinger
Chemical change actually alters the material as it reacts to certain substances.
The students had originally said that physical changes were: those that did not change the object, stayed the same shape or structure, were transformed to something else, and those that changed forms of matter.
The knowledge about chemical changes was similar: those objects that change materials, those that did not change materials, and were broken down into other chemicals.
