ACC Chemistry Club

This club introduces our availability for chemistry tutoring for students of all ages. Our interests not only include fundamental concepts in chemistry, but also how molecular architecture relates to medical imaging.

Let us help you become better equipped at balancing redox equations. For starters, the following steps are helpful when dealing with redox reactions in acidic solutions:
  • Step #1: Determine oxidation numbers.
  • Step #2: Figure out what is being oxidized and reduced.
  • Step #3: Write half reactions.
  • Step #4: Balance atoms other than O and H.
  • Step #5: Add H2O to balance O, and add H+ to balance H.
  • Step #6: Add electrons (e) to balance charges.
  • Step #7: Multiply half reactions, making the # of e equal in both.
  • Step #8: Add half reactions, cancelling out things that appear on both sides.
  • Step #9: Make sure everything balances by doing a final check.

Become fluent at determining electron configurations, distinguishing valance shells, identifying chemical bonds, and applying the differences between periodic trends.
