The space shuttle uses ammonium perchlorate and aluminum to create an explosive reaction. The reaction can be seen below. 2 NH4ClO4 (s) + 2 Al (s) yields Al2O3 (g) + 2 HCl (g) + 2 NO(g) + 3 H2O (g) Which of the following statements correctly describes this reaction? Aluminum is oxidized because it lost electrons. Aluminum is oxidized because it gained electrons. Oxygen is oxidized because it lost electrons. Oxygen is oxidized because it gained electrons.

@Photon336 d is correct
Photon336
  • Photon336
look at oxygens oxidation state it goes from -2 to -2 it doesn't change
Photon336
  • Photon336
what happens to aluminum? It goes from an oxidation state of 0 to what?

to 3 iguess
Photon336
  • Photon336
yes. that's correct, 0 to +3 means what gain or lose electrons?

gain

  • anonymous
so d is correct

imeant b

  • Photon336
remember if oxidation state goes up, you lose electrons, aluminum is oxidized

so d @Photon336

it must be the first one because we already agree that aluminum is oxidized goes from 0 to +3 and that means it loses electrons.
