Balancing in a basic solution

Postby Kyra LeRoy 1E » Wed Mar 14, 2018 11:05 pm

For the final, do we need to know how to balance redox equations in basic conditions? Or should we just focus on acidic?

Thanks!

Yes we should know how to balance equations in basic conditions as well as acidic

The course outlines show that we must be able to balance both; check the outlines posted on the class website to see all the material / concepts we need to know for each section.

For basic soln's you use the same method as acidic, except you balance the H with H2O and OH-, because you cant add in H+ since that would make it acidic

Balancing in basic is same as acidic, just add OH- to both sides to get rid of the H+, then cancel out the resulting H2O's.
