Question by Melanie Smith: Is the addition of orange juice to water a chemical reaction?
I know that a chemical reaction involves the breaking up of bonds, and if this is totally correct, then which bonds within the orange juice and water are being broken? I thought that it was just dilution. No chemical reaction had taken place.

Your right, it is just a dilution…

When you mix OJ with water you are not creating anything new…(No gas, precipitate, etc)

OJ is mostly water anyway which makes this a dilution, not an actual chemical process
