Self Assessment Checklist – Redox

Knowing the learning objectives is the first step in acing Chemistry. Master the essential concepts and apply them to interesting Chemistry questions confidently. Topical syllabus objective checklists are available here for your self-assessment. These checklists are based on Cambridge O-level Syllabus. Conduct self assessment when you revise. Tick against objectives that you can confidently say ‘I Can Do It’. Revise objectives that you are unsure of. Knowing what you need to know builds confidence in tackling questions. 

Work hard. Work smart. All the best.

Self Assessment Checklist - Redox

  I can do this!
aDefine oxidation in terms of gain of oxygen, loss of hydrogen and loss of electrons.

bDefine reduction in terms of loss of oxygen, gain of hydrogen and gain of electrons.
cDefine oxidation as an increase in oxidation state.
dDefine reduction as a decrease in oxidation state.
eIdentify redox reactions in terms of oxygen/hydrogen gain/loss, electron gain/loss and changes in oxidation state
fIdentify chemical reactions that are not redox reactions – neutralisation and precipitation reactions.
gDefine an oxidising agent.
hDefine a reducing agent.
iDescribe the use of aqueous potassium iodide to test for the presence of an oxidising agent from the resulting colour change.
jDescribe the use of acidified potassium manganate (VII) to test for the presence of a reducing agent from the resulting colour change.
