In simple terms:
1. The oxidizing agent is reduced.
2. The reducing agent is oxidized.
3. All atoms in a molecule can be assigned an oxidation number. This number changes when an oxidant acts on a substrate.
4. Redox reactions occur when oxidation states of the reactants change.
|Oxidizing And Reducing Agents|
Calculate the equivalent weight of oxidizing/reducing agents.
Molecular mass = 25
Number of electrons lost or gained by one molecule = 30
(equivalentweight of oxidising / reducing agents = Molecular mass/ Number of electrons lost or gained by one molecule)
