• An oxidation-reduction reaction is a reaction that involves the transfer of electrons from one reactant to another.
  • Oxidation is the full or partial loss of electrons or the gain of oxygen.
  • Reduction is thefull or partial gain of electrons and the loss of oxygen in the same reaction.
  • A half-reaction is an equation that shows either the oxidation or the reduction reaction that occurs during a redox reaction.
  • The resulting ions that are formed are then attracted to one another in an ionic bond.
  • This simulation helps visualize all the action inside a battery.
