# What is a chemical combination of two or more different elements joined?

May 22, 2018

A synthesis reaction would be the easiest chemical reaction to understand.

A+ B →AB

#### Explanation:

Examples:

The synthesis of water

2 H_2(g) + O_2(g)→ 2 H_2O(g)

The synthesis of potassium chloride

2 K(s) + Cl_2(g) → 2 KCl(s)

Note: You take two elements react them together on the reactant side (left side), and you produce one compound on the product side (right side).
