Step 1

Redox reaction are those reactions in which oxidation (loss of electrons) and reduction (gain of electrons) of elements takes place simultaneously.

Step 2

Oxidation is the process of addition of oxygen or an electronegative element to the substance. In terms of electrons, it is the process in which loss of electron takes place.

 

Reduction is the pro...
