Chemical reactions involve the transfer of electrons from one substance to another. This type of reaction is called a reduction-oxidation reaction or in other terms called a redox reaction. They are energy‐producing reactions in the industry as well as in the body. The core of a redox reaction is the passing of one or more electrons from one species to another. This free online course on CLEP Chemistry: Chemical Reactions and Kinetics is the fifth in a series of chemistry courses that covers reduction-oxidation reactions. It is important to keep track of the number of electrons being transferred in a redox reaction. This course will teach you how to assign an oxidation number to each substance involved in the reaction as well as the rules for assigning oxidation numbers. A combined understanding of these concepts in chemistry improves your chances of passing your chemistry exam as a student. While it provides teachers and tutors with a modern outlook into how chemistry is taught.

Oxidation numbers are assigned to each element in a chemical reaction to help us learn which element is oxidized and which is reduced. The changes in oxidation numbers are also used to balance redox equations. Clearly, the study of oxidation‐reduction reactions should begin by learning about oxidation numbers. There are several ways to approach balancing redox reactions. This course discusses the half-reaction method or ion-electron method. It explores the electrolytic cell, voltaic cells as well as the electrodes used in electrolysis. The course analyzes the difference between electrolytic cells and voltaic cells. Learners are expected to recall the easy steps outlined in solving the oxidation numbers, organic chemistry and kinetic problems solved in this course. They are also expected to apply relationships and theories to other science subjects and possibly their future workplaces. Upon successful completion of the required modules, your interest in new developments regarding chemistry should be increased. You will also be conversant with the identification and characterization of alkanes, alkynes, alkenes along with their functional groups. You will learn about the classification along with the sub-classification of hydrocarbons into saturated compounds and unsaturated compounds.

Furthermore, Isomers have the same number of atoms but very different chemical properties. Organic compounds that have the same chemical formula but different chemical structures are called isomers. You will learn about the three main types of isomers. You will also learn about the rate law along with the factors that affect reaction rates. When provided with concentration and time data, what is the easiest way to determine the rate law? How do you calculate the half-life reaction? These and other questions are clearly answered through the chemistry concepts contained in this course. The course is specifically designed for science teachers and students to cover various chemistry concepts. Teachers and scientists that enrol in this course will be able to refresh their knowledge with improved chemistry content. Students will gain exposure to key elements of scientific quantities along with their basic units. What are you waiting for? Start your learning journey into the world of chemistry today!
