Predicting chemical reactions

  • #1
Hello,
I am a A level student. I find difficulties with different chemical reactions.
Is there any simple way of predicting chemical reactions.
Is there any basic principles that can be followed instead of memorising chemical equations?
Different chemical reactions occurs in different conditions?
Are there any way of predicting these conditions?
Please help me.

No. That's what the chemistry is about.

You need to memorize some things. For example if you will remember insoluble salts you will be able to tell whether something will precipitate when you mix solutions of two substances. And so on. Some things have to be remembered, some rules applied and most of the reactions can be predicted.

Then you mix reactants in the lab and you get something completely different then expected, but that's another story ;)
