Problem 35P

For each reaction, identify the substance being oxidized and the substance being reduced.

(a) 2 Sr(s) + O2(g) → 2 SrO(s)

(b) Ca(s) + Cl2(g) → CaCl2(s)

(c) Ni2+(aq) + Mg(s) → Mg2+ (aq) + Ni(s)

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution: Here, we are going to identify the substance that is oxidized and reduced in the given reactions.

Step1:

The term “oxidation” is defined as the addition of oxygen/electronegative element to a substance or removal of hydrogen/ electropositive element from a substance. The substance which undergoes oxidation are said to be oxidized.

Whereas the term “reduction” is defined as removal of oxygen/electronegative element from a substance or addition of hydrogen/ electropositive element to a substance.

In terms of electron transfer, the reactions that involve loss of electrons are called oxidation reactions. Similarly, the reactions that involve gain of electrons...
