Question

State the relationship between oxidation and oxidising agent in a redox reaction. Give an example of redox reaction showing the relationship between oxidation and oxidising agent.


Solution

Oxidation is addition of oxygen or removal of hydrogen. The oxidising agent causes oxidation of other compound by getting reduced.
eg: CuO+H2Cu+H2O
CuO is getting reduced to Cu, so it is an oxidising agent. It oxidises H2 to H2O
