I want to help you achieve amazing GCSE results!

In decomposition reactions a single reactant is broken down into two or more products, there are all sorts of decomposition reactions such as thermal decomposition where heat causes a reactant to break down or photo decomposition where light causes the break down. Combustion is when oxygen reacts with another reactant causing it to combust or burn. Combustion of hydrocarbons (compounds made up of only carbon and hydrogen) produce water and carbon dioxide when they undergo combustion. Hope this helped, please feel free to send me a message if you need anymore help.
