AQA A Level Chemistry

QuestionAnswer
What is oxidation in terms of oxygen? The gain of oxygen
What is oxidation in terms of electrons? The loss of electrons
What does an oxidising agent do? Donate oxygen/accept electrons (it is reduced)
What is reduction in terms of oxygen? The loss of oxygen
What is reduction in terms of electrons? The gain of electrons
What does a reducing agent do? Accept oxygen/donate electrons (it is oxidised)
What are redox reactions? Reactions in which both oxidation and reduction occur
What is the oxidation state for an element ie Fe/Cl2 Zero
What is the oxidation state of a metal in its compound? The charge on the ion that it forms
What is the oxidation state of an oxygen atom in a compound? it is -2 unless it is in a peroxide (H2O2) when it is -1
What is the oxidation state of an hydrogen atom in a compound? it is +1 unless in a hydride (NaI) when it is -1
What is the oxidation state of Cl in a compound? it is -1 unless when bonded to F/O when it can have positive values
What is disproportionation? A redox reaction in which the oxidation state of some atoms of a particular element increase in oxidation state and of others decrease in oxidation state
What is the oxidation state of chromium in the Cr²⁺ ion? "+2"
What is the oxidation state of chromium in the CrCl₃? "+3"
What is the oxidation number of iron in iron (III) oxide? "+3"
What is the oxiddation state of K in K2MnO4? "+1"

Write a half equation to show a sodium atom forming a sodium ion Na → Na+ + e-
"Write a half equation for the following change: Cr2O72- → Cr3+ " Cr2O7 2-+ 14H+ + 6 e- → 2 Cr3+ + 7 H+
Write half equation for MnO4- → Mn2+ and Cl- →Cl2 then combine them 2x(MnO4- +5e- + 8H+ → Mn2+ + 4H2O) + 5x(2Cl- →Cl2 +2e-) = 2MnO4- + 16H+ + 10Cl- → 2Mn2+ + 8H2O + 5Cl2

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
