66 Study Guide for An Introduction to Chemistry Section Goals and Introductions Section 6.1 An Introduction to Oxidation-Reduction Reactions Goals To describe what oxidation and reduction mean to the chemist. To describe chemical reactions for which electrons are transferred (oxidation-reduction reactions). To describe oxidizing agents and reducing agents. In many chemical reactions, electrons are completely or partially transferred from one atom to another. These reactions are called oxidation-reduction reactions (or redox reactions). This section provides examples of these reactions and introduces the terms oxidation, reduction, oxidizing agent, and reducing agent, which are summarized in Figure 6.2. Section 6.2 Oxidation Numbers Goal: To describe what oxidation numbers are, how they can be determined, and how they can be used to determine (1) whether the reaction is an oxidation-reduction reaction, (2) what is oxidized in an oxidation-reduction reaction, (3) what is reduced in an oxidation-reduction reaction, (4) what the oxidizing agent is in an oxidation-reduction reaction, and (5) what the reducing agent is in an oxidation-reduction reaction. Oxidation numbers, which are described in this section, provide a tool that allows you to determine the things mentioned in the goal above. Sample Study Sheet 6.1: Assignment of Oxidation Numbers and Tables 6.1 and 6.2, which support the study sheet, summarize the process. The section on our Web site called Balancing Equations for Redox Reaction describes how you can use oxidation numbers. Internet: Balancing Redox Reactions Section 6.3 Types of Chemical Reactions Goal: To describe different types of chemical reactions. Chemical reactions can be classified into types of similar reactions. This section describes some of these types: combination, decomposition, combustion, and single-displacement reactions. You will learn how to identify each type of reaction from chemical equations. The section also describes how you can write chemical equations for combustion reactions ( Study Sheet 6.2 ). The attempt to help you visualize chemical changes on the particle level continues with a description of the single-displacement reaction between solid zinc and aqueous
