Identifying Oxidizing and Reducing Agents
The nickel–cadmium (nicad) battery uses the following redox reaction to generate electricity:
Cd(s) + NiO2(s) + 2H2O(l) → Cd(OH)2(s) + Ni(OH)2(s)
Identify the substances that are oxidized and reduced, and indicate which is the oxidizing agent and which is the reducing agent.
Identify the oxidizing and reducing agents in the reaction
2 H2O(l) + Al(s) + MnO4–(aq).Al(OH)4–(aq) + MnO2(s)
