Reactions” ? Explain with one example.

MSCERT Class 10 General Science Ch2 The Magic of Chemical Reactions


The reaction which shows both oxidation and reduction reactions in it is said to be redox reaction.

Example: ZnS ----------> Zn + S
             Zn*+2   S*-2       0      0

here Zn*+2 is reduced, S*-2 is oxidised
2 5 2
The reactions in which both oxidation and reduction occur these reactions are redox-reactions. Ex- 2PbO+C--->2Pb +CO2. Here both oxidation and reduction had occur in the same reaction so this is a redox-reaction. Hope this helps.pls nark as brainliest.
