8.17  Consider the reactions:

(a) H_{3}PO_{2}(aq)+4AgNO_{3}(aq)+2H_{2}O(l)\rightarrow H_{3}PO_{4}(aq)+4Ag(s)+4HNO_{3}(aq)

(b)H_{3}PO_{2}(aq)+2CuSO_{4}(aq)+2H_{2}O(l)\rightarrow H_{3}PO_{4}(aq)+2Cu(s)+4H_{2}SO_{4}(aq)

What inference do you draw about the behaviour of Ag^{+} and Cu^{+} from these reactions ? 

Answers (1)

Answer-

In the first reaction, we can see that  Ag^{+} oxidizes the phosphorus from (+1 \rightarrow +5) also in second, we clearly see that  Cu^{+} oxidize the phosphorus from (+1\rightarrow+5).

Both are oxidizing agents.
