    Cu is +2 and con go to Cu zero Cu+2 -> Cu (s)

    \[CuCl _{2} ---> Cu ^{2+} + 2Cl ^{-}\] it's an electrolyte i believe b/c it dissolves in water. (insoluble in water and non electrolyte can be viewed as the same) so I eliminated both of those. it's either oxidizing or reducing agent.

    I'm going to post more redox/electrochemistry questions today

    @cuanchi so i guess based off of that, in the equation Cu is +2 so it has to be reduced, so it's an oxidizing agent. causes oxidation but is itself reduced.

    @Rushwr found an electrochem practice exam will post it.
