CHM130 Lesson 14 AYL

Explain why metals tend to be oxidized and nonmetals tend to be reduced. Metals have low ionization energies and low electron affinities so they are readily oxidized Nonmetals have high ionization energies and high electron affinities so they are readily reduced.
Why is the oxidized substance also called the reducing agent? It takes oxygen from the oxidizing agent in the oxidation/reduction reaction
In each of the following, determine which reactant is being oxidized and which is being reduced. Al(s) + O2(g) ® Al2O3(s) Ca(s) + F2(g) ® CaF2(s) Al goes from oxidation number 0 to +3 and it is oxidized O goes from 0 to - 2 and it is reduced Ca goes from 0 to +2 and it is oxidized F goes from 0 to -2 and it is reduced
