Unformatted text preview: dentify the species oxidized, the species reduced, the oxidizing agent and the reducing agent in the following electron transfer reaction. 3 Sn 2+ + 2 Al 3 Sn + 2 Al 3+ species oxidized species reduced oxidizing agent reducing agent As the reaction proceeds, electrons are transferred from to . Feedback: Reduction is defined as a gain of electrons. The reduction reaction is: Sn 2+ + 2 e- Sn The species that is reduced is Sn 2+ . Since the species that is reduced causes oxidation, it is called the oxidizing agent. Oxidation is defined as a loss of electrons. The oxidation reaction is: Al Al 3+ + 3 e- The species that is oxidized is Al . Since the species that is oxidized causes reduction, it is called the reducing agent. Electrons are transferred from the reducing agent, Al , to the oxidizing agent, Sn 2+ . Note that the total number of moles of electrons transferred for the balanced equation for the overall reaction is 6 . Cd 2+ + 2 Cr 2+ Cd + 2 Cr 3+ species oxidized species reduced oxidizing agent reducing agent As the reaction proceeds, electrons are transferred from to . Feedback: Reduction is defined as a gain of electrons. The reduction reaction is: Cd 2+ + 2 e- Cd The species that is reduced is Cd 2+ . Since the species that is reduced causes oxidation, it is called the oxidizing agent....
