Question 14.3 6th Edition Hw

Postby Marina Gollas 1A » Mon Feb 25, 2019 1:52 am

In question 14.3 part a, in the following redox reaction below, it states that H2SO4- is the oxidizing agent and that Cl is the reducing agent. Why is that? Isn't Cl gaining electrons and its oxidation number is lowered from 0 to -2?
Cl2 (g) + S2O3 (2-) (aq) becomes Cl- (aq) + SO4 (2-) (aq)

Also, what would we consider S2O3 (2-) (aq) to be? Is it a reduced? Or oxidized? Or none?
