We'll go step by step through how to balance an oxidation reduction (redox) reaction in acidic solution. Most importantly, both charges and atoms must balance. Here are the steps: first, calculate oxidations numbers for all the elements in the equation. Next, figure out what is being oxidized and what is being reduced. Then, write half reactions for the oxidation and reduction. After that, balance each half reaction: first, for the atoms other than O and H, then for O and H, and finally for charge by adding electrons. After being balanced, the oxidation and reduction half reactions are ready to be added back to together. Make sure that the number of electrons is the same in the oxidation and reduction half reactions. If they are not, multiply one or both of the half reactions to make the number of electrons the same. Then, combine the oxidation and reduction half reaction, canceling out stuff that appears on both sides of the equation. Lastly, do a final check to make sure that everything balances: both atoms and charge.

Thank You so much! GOD bless!!
8:07 do both charges have to equal zero? Or can they simply be the inverse of each other ex: -2 charge on reactant and +2 on product side?

Solid content mate, thank you.
You are so blessed. You have my respect
Sir why are you not a indian professor ☺
And that's what is called as MITian

Arrogance and rudeness are training wheels on the bicycle of life — for weak people who cannot keep their balance without them.
I'm Amazed!!!!! I was trying to understand this method since 1 week but your teaching way make me understand this within just 14 mins... Wow.. thanks alot sir😊😊😍
I swear Balancing reduction oxidation equation is a pain in the ass. Great vid as always tyler
