Problem 38P

Problem 38P

For each of the reactions in Problem 36, identify the oxidizing agent and the reducing agent.

Problem 1

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

(a) Mg(s) + Br2(g) → MgBr2(s)

(b) 2 Cr3+(aq) + 3 Mn(s) → 2 Cr(s) + 3 Mn2+ (aq)

(c) 2 H+ (aq) + Ni(s) → H2(g) + Ni2+ (aq)

Step-by-Step Solution:

Problem 38P

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

(a)

(b)

(c)

                                                     Step by Step Solution

Step 1 of 3

(a)

Oxidizing agent is a substance that is easily reduced or gains electrons. Those elements that can form anions will serve as good oxidizing agents.

Reducing agents is a substance that is easily oxidized and loses electrons. Those elements that form cations will serve as good reducing agents.

The given reaction is as follows.

                                           

“Mg” is oxidized by loose electrons . Hence,it is a reducing agent.

 reduced by accepting electrons. Hence, it is an oxidizing agent.

Therefore, “Mg” is a reducing agent and  is an oxidizing agent.
