. In each of the following reactions, identify which element is oxidized and which is reduced by assigning oxidation states.

a. 2Br 2 O 3 ( s ) + 6Cl 2 ( g ) 4 BCl 3 ( l ) + 3O 2 ( g )    b. GeH 4 ( g ) + O 2 ( g ) Ge ( s ) + 2H 2 O ( g )    c. C 2 H 4 ( g ) + Cl 2 ( g ) C 2 H 4 Cl 2 ( l )    d. O 2 ( g ) + 2F 2 ( g ) 2OF 2 ( g )

Interpretation Introduction

(a)

Interpretation:

In the given oxidation-reduction reaction, the species that oxidized and that reduced should be identified.

Concept Introduction:

The oxidation-reduction reaction is also known as a redox reaction. In this reaction, one reactant is oxidized and other is reduced. The balancing of oxidation-reduction reaction can be done by simple method by comparing the number of each atoms on both sides of the reaction arrow without addition of hydrogen ion, water molecule and electrons from outside.

Explanation

In the given reaction, let the oxidation state of boron on reactant side B2O3 be x thus,

2x+32=02x=+6x=+3

The oxidation state remains the same in product side that is + 3 in BCl3 thus, boron neither oxidized nor reduced
