Redox reactions are the reactions where oxidation and reduction takes place at the same time. Oxidation is the process where there is loss of electrons and reduction is a process where there is gain of electrons. Redox reaction calculator is the instant online tool which can balance any redox reaction.


Example 1: CuO + Mg è Cu + MgOis a redox reaction. Write its oxidation and reduction half reactions.

CuO + Mg -> Cu + MgO

Oxidation state of ‘Cu’ is changing from +2 to 0

Cu+2 + 2e à Cu

Gain of electrons, hence this is a Reduction half reaction.

Oxidation state of ‘Mg’ is changing from 0 to +2.

Mg -> Mg+2 + 2e-

Loss of electrons hence this is Oxidation half reaction.
 


 Example 2: Cu+2 + Zn -> Cu + Zn+2 is a redox reaction. Write its oxidation and reduction half reactions.

Cu+2 + Zn ->  Cu + Zn+2

Oxidation state of ‘Cu’ is changing from +2 to 0

Cu+2 + 2e à Cu

Gain of electrons  hence this is a Reduction half reaction.

Oxidation state of ‘Zn’ is changing from 0 to +2.

Zn-> Zn+2 + 2e-

Loss of electrons  hence this is Oxidation half reaction
