Redox Reaction Types

APCHEM-NFAOFJ

Your group was asked to identify which types of reactions can be represented as redox reactions. Everyone has given an example of what they think is correct.

Check their answers and decide who is right.

A

Crystal Lynn says synthesis reactions can be classified as redox:

$Na_{(s)} + Cl_{2 (g)}\rightarrow 2 NaCl_{(s)}$

B

Barry Um says decomposition reactions can be classified as redox:

$H_2O_{(l)}\rightarrow H_{2 (g)}+ O_{2 (g)}$

C

Barry's brother, Cal C. Um states that single replacement reactions can be classified as redox:

$Ag_{(s)}+ NaCl_{(aq)}\rightarrow Na_{(s)}+ AgCl_{(aq)}$

D

Molly Cule stated everyone in the group is correct. Redox reactions can be classified as each of the examples cited.
