Redox Reaction Assignments/DPPs

The chapter “Redox Reactions” in Class 11 chemistry delves into a fundamental concept governing countless reactions – redox reactions. This crucial chapter unveils the fascinating world of electron transfer between atoms, forming the basis for understanding diverse chemical phenomena and preparing you for success in the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE), National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) and beyond.

Overview : Redox Reaction for Class 11 and JEE

Embracing the Fundamentals:

  • Redox reaction (reduction-oxidation reaction): A chemical reaction in which the oxidation state of at least one element changes due to the transfer of electrons.
  • Oxidation: The loss of electrons by an atom or molecule, resulting in an increase in its oxidation state.
  • Reduction: The gain of electrons by an atom or molecule, resulting in a decrease in its oxidation state.
  • Oxidizing agent: The species that accepts electrons (undergoes reduction) in a redox reaction.
  • Reducing agent: The species that donates electrons (undergoes oxidation) in a redox reaction.

Identifying Redox Reactions:

  • Changes in oxidation states: Look for changes in the oxidation state of at least one element involved in the reaction.
  • Electron transfer: Identify the transfer of electrons between the reactants, indicating a redox process.

Balancing Redox Reactions:

  • Half-reaction method: Break down the overall reaction into two half-reactions, one for oxidation and one for reduction, ensuring the transfer of the same number of electrons in both halves.
  • Balance the individual half-reactions: Balance the atoms of each element (except H and O) and then balance the charges by adding H⁺ ions in acidic solutions, OH⁻ ions in basic solutions, and H₂O in both acidic and basic solutions.
  • Equalize the number of electrons transferred: Adjust the coefficients of the half-reactions if necessary to ensure the number of electrons transferred in both halves is equal.
  • Add the balanced half-reactions to obtain the balanced overall equation.

Essential Formulas (for reference):

  • Oxidation state (oxidation number): The hypothetical charge an atom would have if all its bonds were ionic.

Question Types in JEE:

  • Identifying oxidation states and assigning oxidation numbers to elements: Recognizing changes in oxidation states based on their positions in the periodic table and the types of bonds formed.
  • Balancing redox reactions using the half-reaction method: Applying the stepwise approach to balance individual half-reactions and the overall equation.
  • Identifying the oxidizing and reducing agents: Recognizing the species undergoing oxidation and reduction based on changes in oxidation states.
  • Matching reactants and products: Pairing the correct reactants with their corresponding products based on their oxidation states and the type of reaction.
  • Solving stoichiometry problems involving redox reactions: Applying mole concepts and balanced equations to calculate quantities of reactants and products.
  • Connecting to real-world applications: Recognizing how the principles of redox reactions find application in various fields like corrosion prevention, battery technology, and biological processes.
