Instructions and Help about Form 2220 Reduction

This video is an introduction to oxidation reduction reactions we often abbreviate oxidation and reduction so we just call these redox reactions for short so what is an oxidation reduction or redox reaction here's a quick definition in oxidation reduction reactions electrons move between atoms check out this diagram here we got atom a and atom B and there's an electron moving out of atom a into atom B so this is definitely an oxidation reduction reaction because there's an electron moving between the atoms now we can describe the movement of this electron using the words oxidation and reduction so let's learn specifically what both of these mean reduction is a gain of electrons I know this seems kind of confusing because usually when you have a reduction of something you have less of it we'll talk later about why a gain of electrons is called a reduction but anyway reduction gain of electrons and then oxidation which is a loss of electrons so we got reduction and oxidation what's happening to atoms a and B over here well atom a is giving up one of its electrons it's losing an electron so atom a oxidation is taking place atom B is receiving an electron it's gaining an electron so it atom B reduction is taking place now we can modify these words slightly to come up with terms we use to describe what's happening to the ABS atom a is undergoing oxidation so we can say that atom a is being oxidized atom B is undergoing reduction so we can say that atom B is being reduced so we got oxidation oxidized reduction reduced the big picture here is that reduction is a gain of electrons and oxidation is a loss so I don't know about you but...
