    I found this question when I was revising and I don't know/ forgotten how to do it.

    Which one is the reducing agent and which one is the oxidising agent in the following equation?:
    SO2(g) + 2H2O(l) + 2Cu2+(aq) + 2Cl-(aq) → SO42-(aq) + 4H+(aq) + 2CuCl(s)

    How do you go about working it out?

    Thanks in advance.

    Work out the oxidation numbers, and then look at which change :fluffy:
