Balancing Oxidation-Reduction Equations
By Debbie McClinton Dr. Miriam Douglass Dr. Martin McClinton
In this animated activity, learners examine the terms "half-reaction," "oxidizing agent," and "reducing agent" and follow five interactive examples to balance equations for oxidation-reduction reactions. Three problems are provided as a self-check.
Learners examine how five or six groups of electrons around a central atom cause the shape of the molecule to be trigonal bipyramidal, seesaw, T-shaped, linear, octahedral, square pyramidal, or square planar. Seven examples and three interactive questions are provided in this animated activity.
The flash was AWESOME! it helps alot with basic concepts.
If some of the inorganic concepts could be explained like this, everyone would be able to pass the course at Georgia TechPosted by Chris ling on 4/20/2009 12:00:00 AM Reply
