Problem 1

For a chemical reaction to take place, some or all chemical bonds in the reactants must break, and new
chemical bonds must form among the participating atoms to create the products. Write a simple chemical equation of your own choice, and list the bonds that must be broken and the bonds that must form for the reaction to take place.

Problem 2

For the simple reaction
$$\mathrm{CH}_{4}(g)+4 \mathrm{Cl}_{2}(g) \rightarrow \mathrm{CCl}_{4}(l)+4 \mathrm{HCl}(g)$$
list the types of bonds that must be broken and the types of bonds that must form for the chemical reaction to take place.
