Single Replacement Chemical Reaction
One type of atom or group in a compund is replaced by another type of atom or group forming a new compund. Below --> Hydrogen in HCl is replaced by Aluminium in AlCl3
Example: Al + HCl --> AlCl3 + H2 Balanced : 2Al + 6HCl = 2AlCl3 + 3H2
Note: If you use CHEMIX School for balancing
you must replace the arrow '-->' by '>' (greater then).
CHEMIX School example - Balancing chemical reactions : Al + HCl > AlCl3 + H2
