I also have a question relating to the difference between acidic and basic solutions. When you are doing a basic redox reaction, can you use hydronium ions to balance the equation and then a the end substitute them for hydroxide ions? So basically, can you do basic redox reactions the same as acidic and just change them hydronium ions to hydroxide ions?
Acids produce hydronium ions in solution. Bases are substances that produce hydroxide ions in solution. Another definition is the Bronsted-Lowry theory of acids and bases, where an acid is a proton (hydrogen ion) donor while a base is a proton (hydrogen ion) acceptor. In a basic solution, you add to neutralize the to .
