Purpose: The purpose of this experiment was to explore the ideas of a Redox Reaction. While doing this we experimented with reduction and oxidation. The main theme of that lab was that in order to have either a reduction or a oxidation you needed the other one. Procedure: To start off the experiment we had to learn how to balance a redox reaction. To do this we first wrote down the original reaction and split the reaction in half. We then took one half of the reaction and balanced everything except for the H and O, and did the same thing for the second half. Then we took one half and counted the number of oxygen atoms and added one H2O molecule at a time to the side with the fewest O atoms. Then kept adding H2O molecules till both sides had the same number of O atoms, and repeated this for the second half of the reaction. We then balanced the H atoms by selecting one part of the equation and counted the number of H atoms. Then we added 1H+ ion to the side with the fewest H ions, and kept adding them till both sides had the same amount and repeated for the second
