Acidic Solution vs. Basic Solution

Postby Sophia Kim 1C » Tue Feb 20, 2018 8:49 pm

When balancing redox reactions will the question always say if its in an acidic vs basic solution or would we need to know the difference between the two?

It should always state whether or not the solution the reaction is happening in is acidic or basic because that facilitates the addition of water, H+, or OH-. My TA said that you should always be given this as a part of the initial condition.

Yeah, I'm assuming that since it was always given to us in the book's homework problems, it'd always be given to us on a test!
