2 Answers

  • See this previous question and answer.

  • Zn^0(s) -2 e --> Zn^2+(aq) (oxidation)

    2Ag^+(aq) +2 e --> 2Ag^0(s) (reduction) The valence is less, reduced.

    Ag is the oxidizing agent and Zn is the recucing agent

    Oxid izing agents are reduced and reducing agents are oxidized. .
