Identifying Acidic/Basic Solutions

Postby Labiba Sardar 2A » Sat Feb 22, 2020 6:32 pm

Would there ever be a case where a question doesn't specify whether the redox reaction is in an acidic/basic solution? If so, how would you know if it's in an acidic/basic solution?

The only case in which this wouldn’t be specified is if hydrogen ions or hydroxide ions are present in reaction, which would indicate whether the solution is acidic or basic.

Additionally, you use H3O+ to balance reactions in acidic conditions, and you use H2O and OH- to balance reactions in basic conditions
