Identigy the substance oxidised & reduced : ZnO + C ---> Zn + CO

Hi,

ZnO(s)+C(s)Zn(s)+CO(g)

Since oxygen has combined with carbon, carbon is the one that is oxidized and ZnO is the oxidizing agent. Similarly carbon has taken the oxygen of ZnO, carbon is the reducing agent and ZnO is the one that has been reduced.

 

Reducing agent-C

Oxidizing agent-ZnO

Oxidized-C

Reduced- ZnO

 

Hope it helps.

Cheers!

ZnO is reduced to Zn, reducing agent is C.

C is oxidised to CO, oxidising agent is ZnO.

Hope that helps... :)
