use oxidation states to identify the element that is being oxidized and the element that is being reduced in the redox reaction

Sn + 4HNO3 ---> SnO2 + 4NO2 + 2H2O
I see that SN is oxidized 0 --> 4+ and book says N is reduced +5 --> +4 I don't see that. Please help

  • chemistry -

    HNO3.
    H = +1.
    O = 3*-2=-6
    N must be +5 for HNO3 to be zero.

    See the other post for NO2 of +4 for N.
