1 Example 1 ¾ Identify electron donor and electron acceptor in the following reaction ¾ 4Fe + 3O 2 -> 2Fe 2 O 3 ¾ Electronegativity: Fe 1.8 O 3.4 ¾ Therefore, in that reaction ¾ Fe would lose electrons (electron donor) Fe will be oxidized ¾ O would gain electrons (electron acceptor) O will be reduced ¾ ------------------------- Example 2 Identify the electron donor and the electron acceptor in the following reaction, ¾ H 2 + Br 2 -> 2HBr ¾ Electronegativity: H 2.2 Br 3.0 ¾ Therefore, in that reaction H would lose electrons (electron donor) y H is the reducing agent

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
