Identify the substance s that are oxidised and the substances that are reduced in the given reaction: 2PbO + C------------> 2Pb +CO2
Oxidation means addition of oxygen or removal of hydrogen.
Reduction means addition of hydrogen or removal of Oxygen.
2PbO + C------------> 2Pb +CO2
So in the above reaction ,
1. Pb is reduced . ( From PbO to Pb ) .
2. C is oxidised (From C to CO2 ) .
Hope this helps You!!
