  3. 3. CHEMICAL EQUATIONS AND REACTIONS The evolution of light and heat is an indication that a chemical reaction is taking place.
  4. 4. CHEMICAL REACTION A process in which nature & chemical composition of a substance is changed. Examples: food digestion, burning of coal, rust of iron nails, burning of methane etc, Hydrochloric acid is added to a solution of sodium carbonate. Among the products is the gas CO2, Which is seen bubbling from The decomposition (decay) of ammonium dichromate proceeds rapidly, releasing energy in the form of light and heat Bubbling of CO2

  10. 10. Balanced Equation If the number of atoms of each element are the same on reactant & product sides, it is called a balanced equation Reactants Products 2H2 + O2 → 2H2O Na2CO3 + 2HCl → 2NaCl + H2O + CO2↑ 2C2H5OH + 6O2 → 4CO2 ↑ + 6H2 CH4 + 2O2 → CO2 + 2 H2O
  11. 11. Balancing Simple Chemical Equations • A balanced equation is one which has the same number of atoms of each element on either side of the equation. • Matter can neither be created nor destroyed in a chemical reaction. • The mass of the products of a reaction must be equal to the mass of the reactants. This is the bases of writing a balanced chemical equation. Examples: Balanced equation ZnS + 2HCl ZnCl2 + H2S Unbalanced equation ZnS + HCl ZnCl2 + H2S
  12. 12. STEPS FOR BALANCING EQUATION Step 1.Use correct Formulas for reactants & products: CH4 (g) + O2 (g) → CO2 ↑ + H2O Step 2.Determine If equation is balanced: CH4 (g) + O2 (g) → CO2 ↑ + H2O Reactants Products Remarks 1C atom 1C atom balanced 4H atoms 2H atoms Not balanced 2O atoms 3O atoms Not balanced Balancing Equation by Inspection Method (by Trial & Error)
  13. 13. Step 3 Balance the equation one element at a time: Work with one element at a time, starting with relatively small number. Adjust coefficients of reactants & products on both sides. First Hydrogen atoms by placing coefficient 2 with H2O. CH4(g) + O2(g) → CO2 ↑ + 2H2O Then Oxygen atoms by placing 2 with O2 CH4(g) + 2O2(g) → CO2 ↑ + 2H2O STEPS FOR BALANCING EQUATION
  14. 14. Step 4 Check if the equation is balanced : CH4(g) + 2O2(g) → CO2 ↑ + 2H2O Reactants Products Remarks 1C atom 1C atom balanced 4H atoms 4H atom balanced 4O atoms 4O atoms balanced STEPS FOR BALANCING EQUATION

  20. 20. The many reactions that involve the transfer of electrons from one species to another are called oxidation-reduction reactions, or redox reaction. Oxidation: is the loss of electrons. Reduction: is the gain of electrons. OXIDATION-REDUCTION (REDOX) REACTIONS: Oxidation (loss of electrons) A AB B oxidized reduced Reduction (gain of electrons) Electron e-Electron e-
  21. 21. Oxidation 1. Addition of oxygen S + O2 SO2 Addition of oxygen 2. Or loss of electrons by substance Mg Mg2+ + 2e- loss of electrons 3.Or Removal of hydrogen or any electropositive element from a compound. CR OH H R CR R O oxidation Removal of hydrogen
  22. 22. Reduction 1. Removal of oxygen 2.or gaining of electrons. 3.Combination of hydrogen or any electropositive element from a compound. i. CuO + C Cu + CO Removal of oxygen (Copper oxide is reduced to copper and carbon is oxidized to carbon monoxide) ii. Cl2 + H2 2HCl CR R O CR OH H R reduction iii. Combination of hydrogen
  23. 23. Oxidizing Agent The species that oxidize other substances or gain electrons. e.g. O2 Reducing agent The species that reduce other substances or lose electrons. e.g. Mg Example: 2Mg + O2 2MgO reducing oxidizing agent agent
  24. 24. Mg Mg2+ + 2e- loss of two electrons (Oxidation) 2Mg 2Mg2+ + 4e- loss of four electrons (Oxidation) O2 + 4e- 2O2- gain of four electrons ( Reduction) The product MgO is ionic which is formed by transfer of electrons.

  26. 26. Oxidation Number Oxidation number of an element is a number which indicates the degree of oxidation or reduction suffered by an element. 1. Oxidation number of an element in simple mono atomic ion is equal to its electrical charge. Fluorine has oxidation number of -1 in its compounds. Hydrogen has oxidation number of +1 and Oxygen shows -2. The position of element in the periodic table helps to assign its oxidation state. Example: Group IA elements have oxidation number of +1. Group IIA elements have oxidation number of +2.
  27. 27. Oxidation Number 2. The sum of oxidation number in a molecule must be 0. E.g. Na = +l, Cl = -1 therefore NaCl = 0 3. In a polyatomic ion, the sum of the oxidation numbers of the constituent atoms is equal to the charge on the ion. E.g. NH4 + , H3O+ , OH- , CN- ,NO3 - ,CO3 2- etc. 4. The oxidation number of the atoms in any free, uncombined element state is zero E.g. H2, O2, O3, P4 = 0
  28. 28. BIOLOGICAL OXIDATION- REDUCTION REACTIONS The flow of electrons in oxidation-reduction reactions is responsible, directly or indirectly, for all of the work done by living organisms. The source of electrons is reduced compounds (food). The path of electron flow in metabolism is complex. Electrons move from various metabolic intermediates to specialized electrons carriers in enzyme- catalyze reactions. Those carriers in turn donate electrons to acceptors with higher electron affinities, with the released of energy. Cells contain a variety of molecular energy transducers, which convert the energy of electron flow into useful work.
