Chem12 Oxidation and Reduction : Test 1a 40
1) Define : Oxidation 2)a) A piece of copper is placed in a silver nitrate solution. Write down the balanced net ionic equation (redox equation) for this reaction.
b) Which species is the oxidizing agent?
3) Give the oxidation number of S in the species FSO3- ?
4) Is this a redox reaction : 2HCl + Na2S -> 2NaCl + H2S ?
5) In a redox reaction, the increase in the oxidation number of one species is accompanied by the decrease in the oxidation number of another species. Explain.
6) Balance the half reaction : HNO3 -> NO2 in acid solution.

7) Balance the half reaction : NH3 -> N2O in basic solution.

8) The four elements; W, X, Y and Z, form diatomic molecules and also form singly charged negative ions. The following observations are made in a series of experiments :
2X- + Y2 -> 2Y- + X2
2W- + Y2 -> N.R.
2Z- + X2 -> 2X- + Z2.
Arrange the four balanced oxidation half reactions in order with the strongest oxidizer at the top.
