H2S+Cl2=S+2HCl ,

which subtance is :

1)oxidised

2)reduced

3)the oxidising agent

4)the reducing agent

Give reasons?

H2S + Cl2  S + 2HCl

‚Äč1) H2S is oxidised to S by losing hydrogen atoms.
2) Cl2 is reduced to HCl by gaining hydrogen atoms.
3) The substance which gets oxidised is called reducing agent. Hence H2S is reducing agent.
4) The substance which gets reduced is called oxidising agent. Hence Cl2 is oxidising agent.

1) S IS OXIDISED BY LOSING HYDROGEN ATOMS

2) CL2 IS REDUCED BY GAINING HYDROGEN ATOMS

3)Cl2 IS THE OXIDISING AGENT

4)S IS THE REDUCING AGENT
