Posted by Joy on Thursday, February 20, 2014 at 2:11pm.

Assign oxidation numbers to each individual element in the following reaction and identify the oxidizing and reducing agents.

2 Zn S + 3 O2 -> 2 S O2 + 2 Zn O
Ox#: Zn=+2 S=-2 O=-2 -> S=+2 O=-2 Zn=+2 O=2

Is that correct?
I'm not sure how to identify the oxidizing and reducing agents.
