Question

C+O​​​​​​2=CO​​​​​2
Is the above reaction a combination reaction or an oxidation reaction or both ?


Solution

In the first reaction, each carbon atom increases its oxidation number from 0 to +2, so C(s) is oxidized and is the reducing agent. Each oxygen atom decreases its oxidation number from 0 to –2, so O2 is reduced and is the oxidizing agent.
