#### Explanation:

Chemical change is characterized by the formation of new substances, and the making and breaking of strong chemical bonds.

For a typical chemical reaction..........

$C \left(s\right) + {O}_{2} \left(g\right) \rightarrow C {O}_{2} \left(g\right) + \Delta$

.........can you identify the bonds formed and bonds broken? What does $\Delta$ mean?
