• Unit 7: Acid-Base and Oxidation-Reduction Reactions

    Now let's look at two types of chemical reactions: acid-base and oxidation-reduction. We will review the properties of acids and bases and introduce two acid-base definitions: Arrhenius and Brønsted-Lowry. We will also examine pH calculations, and learn how to use the pH scale to identify acidic and alkaline solutions. Next, we discuss oxidation and reduction, learn how to write and balance equations for oxidation-reduction reactions, and introduce some common oxidizing and reducing agents.

    Completing this unit should take you approximately 12 hours.
