Oxidation Numbers

Postby Bailey Giovanoli 1L » Sun Nov 08, 2020 1:48 pm

I was doing the Sapling homework, and I came across a problem involving oxidation numbers, #10 on Sapling. We have yet to talk about oxidation and oxidation numbers in lecture, correct? Is this something we will talk about in the future, or am I expected to pick up on it on my own?

I don't see it on the outline for chemical bonds so it might have been a mistake.

It will probably be covered soon; in the meantime here is a helpful chart in case you want to take a look: https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&url=htt ... AdAAAAABAD

I'm sure we will cover it if/when we do redox reactions. That might be a part of 14b though, I'm not sure. But for this unit I don't believe we need to know them.

Hi! As others have said, I don't see it on the outline posted on the class website so I would not worry too much about it for this unit. While I think sapling is helpful sometimes I think can be a little off of what we are actually required to know.

Other people have said this already, but it'll probably either be covered soon, or since it's not on the outline, won't be a big deal for this chapter!

Yeah it seems as if it might be covered soon or not be important for this chapter as it is not on the outline.

I wouldn't worry about a topic that isn't on the outline, but it would also be useful to read through the chapter in the textbook just to make sure you know the basics.
