this questions about decomposition so it'd probably help to know

00:25

what that word means Decomposition means breaking down or splitting

00:29

up heart when food waste decomposes it breaks down it's

00:33

like that time you broke your mom's favorite vase You

00:35

were just decomposing it into a million little pieces there

00:38

right way Always knew that it somehow be a valuable

00:40

life lesson Well in chemistry of decomposition reaction is a

00:43

type of reaction where a single molecule breaks down to

00:45

create two or more new atoms or molecules which means

00:48

that a decomposition reaction by definition has only one reacted

00:53

and that tells us to choice A should be the

00:55

correct answer But let's break down the other answers to

00:58

make sure since the decomposition reaction always has two or

01:01

more products choice people must be wrong and choices cnd

01:04

both imply that there are multiple reactant involved which can't

01:07

be right either since the decomposition reaction always has only

01:09

one reacted Just as we suspected The answer is a

01:13

ralph decomposition doesn't take care of our leftover casserole splitting

01:16

apart its molecules We certainly will Hopefully you won't eat 00:01:20.784 --> [endTime] so much that we also split our pants
