When the oxidation-reduction reaction shown here is balanced, how many electrons are transferred for each atom of copper that reacts?

Ag^+ + Cu = Ag + Cu^2+

  • Chemistry -

    Cu is zero in the metal.
    It is +2 on the right.
    In going from zero to +2, Cu must have .......(gained/lost) two electrons.
