Many chemical reactions involving oxygen produce energy (heat). Such a combustion reaction typically results in a visible flame. Combustion reactions are a type of oxidation-reduction reactions (but, not all oxidation-reduction reactions result in combustion). Synthesis (or, combination) reactions are another subclass of the oxidation-reduction class of reactions. Decomposition reactions are yet another subclass of oxidation-reduction reactions. Precipitation reactions and acid-base reactions are important categories of reactions that differ from oxidation-reduction reactions. Here, familiarity with types, classes, and subclasses of reaction types is emphasized, along with practice in the identification of these from a written formula.
