how many electrons are transferred in the following oxidation-reduction reation?
Zn(s) + 2AgNO3(aq) = Zn(NO3)2(aq) + 2Ag(s)
In Zn (s),
the Zn has a charge of 0 In Zn(NO3)2, the Zn has a charge of +2. The zinc has lost 2 electrons. In 2 AgNO3 (s),
2 Ag have a charge of +1 for one,so total of +2 In 2 Ag (s), the 2 Ag have a charge of 0. The 2 Ag have gained 2 electrons. The number of electrons transferred is 2................
hope you understood...please message if you have doubts,,,thank you
