# Ion-Electron Method

Ion-Electron Method for Balancing Redox Reaction:

Following steps are followed while balancing redox equations by this method:

(i) Split the complete equation into two half reactions, one representing oxidation and the other reduction reactions.

(ii) Balance these equations with respect to charge by introducing electrons.

(iii) Multiply half equations to equalize the number of electrons.

(iv)  Add the above equations to obtain an equation which is balanced with respect to charge an atom. $H^+ \text{and} OH^-$ ions may be placed according to the medium of the reaction.
