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?

Dr. Bob222, Please see my additional posts on Jan 20 at 2:26pm and Jan 21 at 12:33 am. This is in reference to the redox reactions: 1) Fe goes from +2 to +3, and S goes from -2 to +6. They both appear to be oxidized because they increased. Is it possible that both can oxidize...

Dr. Bob222, Ok, I'm starting to see how to get the oxidation numbers. However, since S goes from -2 to+6, does it also oxidize? is it possible that both can oxidize? I thought one oxidized while the other reduced.

DrBob222, I understand that oxidation is a loss, but appears as an increase. I still have two questions. 1) Fe goes from +2 to +3, and S goes from -2 to +6. They both appear to be oxidized because they increased. Please explain. 2)I think my problem is that I don't ...
