Does anyone have any notes/explanation on free radicals?

Showing 1 to 3 of 3

We started about halogens reacting with alkanes today in class and something about free radicals - I don't understand the equations or what this really is. There were stages as well which I didn't get - could anyone help with any notes or links to something that would help me understand this?
