Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0MnO4 SbH3 MnO2 Sb these are the options btw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok i did what was ur final answer im so confused that i need more guidance

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We'll delete one option first i.e SbH3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes that is clear . wouldnt that be the oxidizing agent

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1But there is no SbH3 there in the qn right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what is the oxidizing agent in this equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1reducing agent is substance which get oxidized itself by giving electron

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I think so can you wait for sometime i'll check back to you after referring to some books thanks

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok so this is simple. Keep this in mind Reduction means there will be a decrease in the product from the reactant Oxidation means there will be an increase in the product

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So as far as the qustion is concerned, Mno4 gets reduced to MNO2 and Sbh2 to Sb. So both Sb and O2 get reduced. Since the options given to you do not have O2, go for Sb

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and that makes the oxidizing agent to be mn04

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1vice versa of agents Oxidising agent Decreases and Reducing agent increases

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Have you understood? i think you are confused

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1OK I'll explain the entire thing with another example.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You need not learn any definition byheart, just understand these simple procedures that i tell you

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So i said Oxidising agent means there will be a decrease in the product Reducing agent means there will be an increase in the product

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1check this example out. This equation is self balanced so you need not worry about balancing it

shreehari499

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So try using my method and find out the Oxidising agent and Reducing agent
