    There's this book that contains the meaning of just about every single word in the English language. It's called a DICTIONARY. You should give it a read.

    Instead of ranting about the OP's lack of common sense, realise your own and just answer the question...

    give a man a fire and you warm him for one day - set him on fire and you've warmed him for the rest of his life.

    how's he ever going to learn the important life/study skill of being able to find stuff out for himself with people spoonfeeding him?

    You'll find a lot of words used to describe chemical processes aren't necessarily specific to chemical processes.

    (Original post by http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/)
    vig·or·ous adj \?vi-g(?-)r?s\
    1: possessing vigor : full of physical or mental strength or active force : strong <a vigorous youth> <a vigorous plant>

    2: done with vigor : carried out forcefully and energetically <vigorous exercises>
    Thus a reaction that happens quickly, normally with a large output of heat.

    If you want an example, look at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TiJ3WZ5oTEE
