CH30‐EC1 Investigate the chemistry of oxidation and reduction (redox) reactions. [SI, TPS]
a. Compare the characteristics of oxidation‐reduction (redox) reactions with other types of chemical reactions. (STSE, K)
b. Define oxidation and reduction and oxidizing and reducing agents in terms of electron transfer. (K)
Today we started our redox unit. We discussed how to assign oxidation numbers, how to determine if a reaction is a redox reaction, and what types of reactions can be redox reactions.
We also looked at a cool redox reaction that occurs between copper wire and silver nitrate.
