Easy ways to remember

Postby Priscilla Okaiteye » Sat Mar 16, 2019 4:19 pm

Does anyone have any quick or easy ways to remember rules and equations for the final?
i.e: mnemonics

LEO says GER for Redox reactions:
Losing Electrons = Oxidation
Gaining Electrons = Reduction

Since most if not all the formulas are provided you should try to focus on learning how to use them instead of remembering them :)

Also I don't have a mnemonic for it but be sure to remember the degeneracy equation (W=X^n) as I don't believe that one is given to us on our formula sheet.

I always remember "leo" for "lose electron: oxidation" and "lao" for "Left: anode: oxidation"
