Balancing Redox Reactions: Basic vs Acidic

Postby Caitlin Dillon 3G » Sun Feb 05, 2017 9:11 pm

I just started the homework problems for Ch 14. I am really confused. Do we have to know how to balance redox reactions that take place in acidic and basic solutions? If so, do you have any tips?

Yes, most definitely.
See this post for a general outline of the method:

in the textbook, 6th ed, they go through a detailed step by step for the method on pages 563 to 569, Figures 14.1 and 14.2.
