am having trouble understanding this redox rxn.....tell me if i classify it correctly...
2K + Cl2---> 2KCl

oxidized is Cl is the recducing agent
reduced is K is the oxidizing agent

  • Chem -

    K goes from 0 oxidation state on left to +1 on the right. That is a loss of electrons which makes it oxidized and the reducing agent. Cl2 is the reverse.
