Homework Help: chemistry-redox

Posted by Sushmitha on Monday, January 21, 2013 at 8:44pm.

Can two elements both be oxidized in a reaction?

2FeS + 4.5O2 +2H2O==> Fe2O3 + 2H2SO4

I see Fe is oxidized, going from Fe+2 to Fe+3

However, Isn't S going from S-2 to S+6? making sulfur ixidized too, and not reduced?
