Skeletal equation

Postby Andy Nguyen 1A » Sun Feb 18, 2018 9:23 pm

When we write out a skeletal equation, do we only include the species being reduced or oxidized?

Seems like it. In the textbook when they give us skeletal equations, they're also not balanced for atoms.

I found this from Quora:

"A skeletal equation is just a way of using the formulas to indicate the chemicals that were involved in the chemical reaction, without balancing electrons or species."
