Unformatted text preview: BME HW#8 Nigel Chou 17.1) a) Oxidation is the process by which a chemical species (usually a metal) gains electrons according to the equation - + + ne n M M , whereas reduction is the process by which a chemical species loses electrons . An example is the reduction of Hydrogen, which occurs according to the equation (gas) H 2 H 2 2 +- + e . b) Anode: Oxidation Cathode: Reduction 17.5) Yes.
