An Analysis of the Algebraic Method for Balancing Chemical Reactions.
Olson, John A.
Journal of Chemical Education, v74 n5 p538-42 May 1997
Analyzes the algebraic method for balancing chemical reactions. Introduces a third general condition that involves a balance between the total amount of oxidation and reduction. Requires the specification of oxidation states for all elements throughout the reaction. Describes the general conditions, the mathematical treatment, redox reactions, and half reactions. Contains 19 references. (JRH)
