Which type of chemical reaction occurs in 2kclo3 2kcl + 3o2?

synthesis

decomposition

single replacement

double replacement


Answer :


The type  of chemical  reaction that occurs in

2KClO3 →  2KCl  + 3O2  is  decomposition  reaction (answer B)

Explanation :

Decomposition reaction-  is type of chemical reaction that involves  breaking down   compound into smaller or individual  elements.

KClO3 undergoes decomposition reaction   and it is broken down into KCl and  O2.

Mostly in decomposition reaction energy  is involved to break down  compounds.
