Balancing with OH

Postby mh2019 » Fri Feb 05, 2016 12:10 pm

When balancing a redox reaction in a basic solution, can you balance the equation with the OH at the end and treat it like an acidic reaction until then?

Yes, you can add in the OH in the end. Just make sure to combine the H and OH to make water and then cancel that from both sides of the equation.
