Give some examples of how we make good use of oxidation- reduction reactions in everyday life.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Some examples of how we make good use of oxidation- reduction reactions in everyday life should be given.

Concept Introduction:

Oxidation-reduction reactions are a type of reactions which happen most commonly in everyday life. These reactions can be occurred rapidly or slowly. Combustion is an example for a rapid oxidation reduction reaction. And corrosion, decay and various biological processes are oxidation reduction reactions that happen slowly. We can use these oxidation reduction reactions for good causes in everyday life.

Explanation

Combustion is an oxidation reduction reaction, which produce heat and energy. Energy produced by fuel combustion is used to power vehicles and for the function of various types of machines. Heat generated by the combustion also can be used to boil water, to cook and wherever we should use the thermal energy.mp

Decay- when a plant or animal dies, the compounds which it is composed of begin to react with oxygen. This is similar to combustion reaction, but it doesn’t occur as fast as the combustion yet slowly...
