Roman numerals are used to identify the charges on metal cations having multiple oxidation states. Five examples are provided for practice.
Oxidation States of Ions
By Debbie McClinton, Dr. Miriam Douglass, Dr. Martin McClinton
Learners examine the periodic table to identify metallic elements that have either fixed or variable oxidation states.
Common Types of Oxidation-Reduction Reactions (Screencast)
Learners identify combination, decomposition, displacement, and combustion types of redox reactions. They also watch a video clip that demonstrates the reaction of sodium and water.
By Dr. Miriam Douglass
In this interactive object, learners calculate the amount of heat evolved or absorbed in chemical reactions. Four practice problems are provided.
The Formation of Ester Bonds in the Synthesis of Lipids
By Richard Wilkosz
In this animated object, learners examine the formation of ester bonds in the synthesis of lipids using triglyceride biosynthesis as an example. Ester bond formation is described as a dehydration synthesis reaction.
