Balancing Redox Reactions


In the half-reaction method, both oxidation-half and reduction-half reactions are separated and balanced to get oxidation-half reaction and reduction-half reaction respectively. In the end, both half-reactions are added to obtain a final balanced equation.

Learning Objectives:

After completing this module, you will be able to:
- Identify the oxidation half-reaction and reduction half-reaction in a redox reaction.
- Balance oxidation half-reaction and reduction half-reaction separately.
- Balance the overall redox reaction by adding both the half-reactions and cancelling electrons.
