Identify the oxidizing agent in the following reaction - and why?

Zn(s) + 2MnO2(s) ----> ZnO(aq) + Mn2O3(s)


Expert Answer

Step 1

In generally, loss of electron is oxidation and gain of electron is reduction.

Addition of oxygen and removal of hydrogen is oxygen.

Oxidizing agent gets itself reduced in the reaction.

For the giv...
