A redox reaction is defined as a reaction in which oxidation and reduction take place simultaneously.
Oxidation: Oxidation involves either the gain of oxygen or the loss of hydrogen.

1) Gaining Oxygen: Oxidation can occur when a substance gains oxygen. For example, the reaction of magnesium metal with oxygen to form magnesium oxide shows oxidation as magnesium gains oxygen.

Chemistry Practical Class

2) Removal of Hydrogen: Oxidation can also involve the removal of hydrogen from a compound. For example, in the combustion of methane, carbon undergoes oxidation by losing hydrogen.

Chemistry Practical Class

Reduction: Reduction involves either the loss of oxygen or the gain of hydrogen.

1) Loss of Oxygen: Reduction can occur when a substance loses oxygen. For example, the reaction of copper oxide (CuO) with hydrogen gas to produce copper metal and water demonstrates reduction as copper gains oxygen.

Chemistry Practical Class

2) Gaining Hydrogen: Reduction can also involve gaining hydrogen. For example, in the reaction of Hydrogen sulphide with chlorine gas to form sulphur and hydrochloric acid, chlorine undergoes reduction by gaining hydrogen.
