  • REDOX
    • Redox is short for reduction and oxidation
      • REDUCTION
        • Reduction Is Gain of electrons or loss of oxygen.
          • Reduction and Oxidation always happen together in a reaction, that's why its called redox
            • Oxidation Is Loss of electrons or the gain of oxygen
      • OXIDATION
        • Oxidation Is Loss of electrons or the gain of oxygen
    • Example of redox
      • Copper oxide & hydrogen
        • CuO + H2     Cu + H2O
          • There is OXIDATION, as hydrogen gains oxygen
          • There is REDUCTION, as copper looses oxygen
          • So copper is reduced and hydrogen is oxidised
