check_circleExpert Solution
Step 1

Given redox reaction:

co2(g) H2 (g)

Image Transcriptionclose

co2(g) H2 (g) Co(g)H20(g)

Step 2

Oxidation state of Oxygen is -2 at both reactant and product side

Hydrogen has +1 oxidation state at reactant side.

Hydrogen has “0” oxidation state at product side.

Step 3

Calculation of oxidation state of carbon at reactant side:

Let x be the oxidation state of C,

X+1(-2) = 0

x-2 = 0

x = +2


Calculation of oxidatio...
