How many products and reactants are there in a double-replacement reaction?

1 Answer

Thanks for your question regarding double replacement reactions.

In a typical double replacement reaction, you have two reactants and two products. All are compounds.

An example of a typical double replacement reaction is:

Solutions of potassium chloride and sodium chlorate are mixed together.

KCl (aq) + #NaClO_3#(aq) -> NaCl(aq) + #KClO_3# (aq)

The cations switch places (or you could think of the anions as switching places).

Good luck!
