  1. 1. BALANCING REDOX REACTIONS Oxidation Number Method
  2. 2. OXIDATION NUMBER METHOD Redox reactions can be balanced using: a) Half Reactions b) Oxidation numbers Goal: To balance the electrons that are gained and lostNOTE: When half-reactions are not provided, and a reactiondoes not occur in either acidic or basic solution, then theoxidation number method can be used to balance a redoxreaction
