Introduction to Oxidation Reduction (Redox) Reactions

28620 ratings | 1391521 views
This is an introduction to oxidation reduction reactions, which are often called redox reactions for short. An oxidation reduction (redox) reaction happens when electrons are transferred between atoms. A loss of electrons is called oxidation, and we say that atom has become oxidized. A gain of electrons is called reduction, and we say that the atoms has become reduced. The two separate parts (oxidation and reduction) of an oxidation reduction (redox) reaction are called half reactions. Two half reactions can be put together to make the whole reaction. Oxidation numbers are numbers that can be written above atoms to show whether they are gaining or losing electrons.

Donna Sibayan (20 days ago)
does oxidation require that oxygen atoms be present?
Shubham Garg (21 days ago)
Heres a small trick. Remember ''Redox''. In reduction, electron in on the left side of the equation just like 'Red' in ''Redox''. In oxidation, electron is on the right side of the equation just like 'ox' in ''Redox''.

Keep making these videos as students progress through their chemistry courses. You may not have much of an idea of how far these videos reach in helping people.

Okay but the question asks me “identify the species oxidized” I know that Iron (Fe) has been oxidized but do i answer it as: B) Fe Or D) Fe^2+ I know the answer is iron but I’m not sure if I should pick the iron before it has been oxidized or after. I think the answer is D, after. But I’d like a second opinion.

Honestly this helped me so much whenever I don’t understand a topic fully I come here and watch his videos which are really helpful. And today I was struggling in class because skipped a year so when I came home studying this topic was the first thing on my list and I saw this video and clicked it right away and I am happy now that I understood the topic.

why would they donate electrons if they are electrically neutral? thus it mean that if they are neutral they are stable?
