Separate this redox reaction into its component half-reactions.
O2+2Cu---->2CuO
thought it was:
Oxidation 2e-+O2---->2O(-2)
Reduction Cu---->Cu(2+)-2e-
but this is wrong

    Ehh hahahah


    I aint helping noone you muad?!

  • science, chemistry -

    For oxidation there are 4 e-'s.
    Also, if you're typing this is on sapling make sure you include the states (eg: (aq), (g), (s))

    on sapling its

    Oxidation:
    Cu --> Cu^2+ + 2e^-

    Reduction:
    O_2 + 4e^- -->2O^2-
