How do I identify acid-base reactions and redox reactions?
These reactions are not mutually exclusive...........
As written this is an acid-base reaction, as well as a redox rxn, in that the hydride anion has reduced the water molecule to give dihydrogen.
In general, any reaction in which oxidation states change (and fuel oxidation falls under this umbrella) are in fact
Can you assign formal oxidation states for this combustion:
Hint, carbon is more electronegative than hydrogen, and hence assumes a formal
