“Is it possible for atoms to revert to their original state after a chemical reaction?”


As we all know, when a series of elements undergo a chemical reaction, the elements and their composition will change as a result. However, is it possible for the products to reverse this change and revert to their original forms? Believe it or not, this is a common process. Products of a reaction can re-react and reform into the reactants! This phenomena is known as a reversible reaction, and the symbol for this process is shown in the picture.
