This Virtual Lab: Exploring Oxidation-Reduction Reactions interactive also includes:
All oxidation-reduction reactions can be reduced to a gain or loss of electrons. A two-part virtual lab first has users perform an experiment to order four metals from strongest to weakest reducing agent. It then requires aspiring chemists to write an equation for silver metal reducing copper ions and conduct an experiment on this reaction.
- Use the virtual lab with learners absent on lab day
- Scholars must have familiarity with oxidation-reduction reactions
- Some previous experience with the virtual lab is beneficial
- No chemicals necessary
- Interactive provides immediate results of chemical reactions
