Substances A, B, and C can all act as oxidizing agents. In solution, A is green, B is yellow, and C is red. In the reactions in which they participate, they are reduced to A−, B−, and C− ions, all of which are colorless.

When a solution of C is mixed with one containing B− ions, the color changes from red to yellow.

When a solution of C is mixed with one containing A− ions, the color remains red.

Arrange A, B, and C in order of increasing strength as an oxidizing agent. (1 is worst oxidizing agent; 3 is best oxidizing agent)

Expert Answer

Step 1

The term oxidation reaction can be termed as a type of chemical reaction in which a given chemical species lose electrons and the oxidation state of the species undergoing oxidation increases.

Step 2

The term reduction has been defined as the chemical reaction in which a given chemical species gains electrons and hence its oxidation state decreases.

Step 3

An oxidizing agent is a chemical species which has the ability to oxidi...
