Identify the oxidizing agent and the reducing agent in the respiration reaction.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The oxidizing and reducing agents in the respiration reaction are to be identified.

Concept Introduction:

Oxidation is the addition of an electronegative element or the removal of anelectropositive element in a chemical reaction.

Reduction is the addition of an electropositive element or the removal of an electronegative element in a chemical reaction.

A chemical reaction in which both oxidation and reduction takes place simultaneously is called a redox reaction.

An oxidizing agent is a substance that oxidizes the other substance and gets reduced in a chemical reaction.

A reducing agent is a substance that reduces the other substance and gets oxidized in a chemical reaction.

Explanation of Solution

The chemical equation for the respiration reaction is as follows:

C6H12O6+6O26CO2+6H2O

An oxidizing agent gains electrons easily and a reducing agent loses electrons easily in a chemical reaction.

C60H12+1O62+6O206C+4
