1.How do acid-base reactions differ from oxidation-reduction (or "redox") reactions?
Answer

Acid-base reactions involve an exchange of protons whereas redox reactions involve an exchange of electrons.<<<

Acid-base reactions and redox reactions involve different processes and have nothing in common.


2.Why does a battery that has thick zinc walls last longer than one that has thin zinc walls?
