Chapter 19.2 : Balancing Redox Equations Chapter 19.2 : Balancing Redox Equations Presentation Transcript

  • Chapter 19.2
    Balancing Redox Equations
  • Objectives:
    Explain what must be conserved in redox equations.
    Balanceredox equations by using the half-reaction method.
  • Half-Reaction Method
    • The half-reaction methodfor balancing redox equations consists of seven steps:
    Write the formula equation if it is not given in the problem. Then write the ionic equation.
    2. Assign oxidation numbers. Delete substances containing only elements that do not change oxidation state.
    H2S + HNO3 H2SO4 + NO2 + H2O
    Formula Equation:
    H2S + H+ + NO3- 2H+ + SO4-2+ NO2 + H2O

  • 3. Write the half-reaction for oxidation.
    • Balance the atoms.
    • Balance the charge.
    4. Write the half-reaction for reduction.
    • Balance the atoms.
    • Balance the charge.

  • 5. Conserve charge by adjusting the coefficients in front of the electrons so that the number lost in oxidation equals the number gained in reduction.
    6. Combine the half-reactions, and cancel out anything common to both sides of the equation.

  • Balancing Redox Equations Using the Half-Reaction Method
  • Sample Problem A
    A deep purple solution of potassium permanganate is titrated with a colorless solution of iron(II) sulfate and sulfuric acid. The products are iron(III) sulfate, manganese(II) sulfate, potassium sulfate, and water—all of which are colorless. Write a balanced equation for this reaction.
