chemistry-balanced redox equations

posted by .

Use the following steps to balance the redox reaction below:

Mg + Au+ Mg2+ + Au


a. Write the oxidation and reduction half-reactions. Make sure each half-reaction is balanced for number of atoms and charge


b. Multiply each half-reaction by the correct number, in order to balance charges for the two half-reactions.


c. Add the equations and simplify to get a balanced equation.

    You need to learn how to do these yourself. What exactly do you not understand so we can get you started on th right foot.

    Mg to Mg2+ loses 2 electrons
    Au+ to Au gains one electron. So 2Au for each Mg


    Mg yields Mg+ +2e
    Au+ + e yields Au

    so multiply the second equation by 2
