A chemical reaction is a process that always results in the interconversion of chemical substances.
Chemical Reaction, process by which atoms or groups of atoms are redistributed, resulting in a change in the molecular composition of substances.
An example of a chemical reaction is formation of rust (iron oxide), which is produced when oxygen in the air reacts with iron.

Chemical symbols and formulas are employed to describe chemical reactions; they denote substances having one set of formulas changing into substances having another set of formulas.
One kind of reaction, ion matching, is easy to understand as due to the pairing (or dissociation) of ions to form (or dissociate) neutral ionic substances, where a double arrow (instead of an equal sign) emphasizes the two possible directions of reaction.
Common examples of redox reactions involving oxygen are the rusting of metals such as iron (in which case the metals are oxidized by atmospheric oxygen), combustion, and the metabolic reactions associated with respiration.

 Education Resources » Chemical reaction
Classically, chemical reactions encompass changes that strictly involve the motion of electrons in the forming and breaking of chemical bonds, 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 reactions may be classified in different ways depending on the particular aspect considered for elaborating the division, or on the branch of Chemistry which the classification originates from.
Reaction rates are related to the concentrations of substances involved in reactions, as quantified by the law of mass action.

 Chemical Equations
A chemical equation is the shorthand that scientists use to describe a chemical reaction.
During this reaction, chemical bonds break and re-form and the products that are produced are carbon dioxide and water vapor (and, of course, light and heat that you see as the flame).
To balance the chemical equation we must add the coefficient "2" in front of the oxygen molecule on the left side of the equation, showing that two oxygen molecules are consumed for every one methane molecule that burns.

Chemical reactions are classified according to the kind of change that takes place.
In so-called replacement reactions the place of one of the elements in a compound is taken by another element reacting with the compound.
The rates at which chemical reactions proceed depend upon various factors, e.g., upon temperature, pressure, and the concentration of the substances involved and, sometimes, upon the use of a chemical called a catalyst.

 Chemical Reactions
The reaction of two or more elements together results in the formation of a chemical bond between atoms and the formation of a chemical compound.  But why do chemicals react together?  The reason has to do with the participating atoms' electron configurations.
Reactions that proceed immediately when two substances are mixed together (such as the reaction of sodium with chlorine or urea with ammonium chloride) are called spontaneous reactions.
In the case of the match, you supply activation energy in the form of heat by striking the match on the matchbook; after the activation energy is absorbed and the reaction begins, the reaction continues until you either extinguish the flame or you run out of material to react.

There are magnitudes of difference in the amounts of energy in ordinary chemical reactions compared to nuclear reactions, the rearrangement of the nuclei of atoms to change to new elements is enormous compared to the smaller energies of chemical changes.
Chemical equations are written with the symbols of materials to include elements, ionic or covalent compounds, aqueous solutions, ions, or particles.
Chemical reactions, also called chemical changes, are not limited to happening in a chemistry lab.

 ACM contest and Blackout
Whenever two chemicals are mixed, some heat is generated and released into the air and the mixed chemical is a known chemical of possibly other type than the original two.
Since the chemist lacks funding to buy necessary equipments to protect himself from the heat generated, it is utmost important to find a way to mix all the chemicals together that produces the least total heat, regardless of the final chemical type.
However, if the chemicals are mixed in the (2 (1 (2 3))) order, it will produce (-500)+0+(-10)= -510 units of heat, which is also the least total heat possible.

 A Checklist for Inherently Safer Chemical Reaction
The chemical substances in the process might not be considered to be reactive chemicals, but this does not mean that the process does not have reactivity hazards.
If the maximum adiabatic reaction temperature exceeds the reaction mixture boiling point, the reaction is capable of generating pressure in a closed vessel and you will have to evaluate safeguards to prevent uncontrolled reaction and consider the need for emergency pressure relief systems.
For exothermic reactions, the temperature may also be higher near the point of introduction of reactants because of poor mixing and localized reaction at the point of reactant contact.
