# Explain the Following in Term Reduction of Gain Or Loss of Oxygen with Two Example. - Science

Course

#### Question

Explain the following in term Reduction of gain or loss of oxygen with two example.

#### Solution 1

Reduction Reaction: It is a chemical reaction in which loss of oxygen or gain of hydrogen takes place

1)CuO+H2 "heat"/>Cu+H2O

Here, Copper Oxide is reduced to become Copper

2)ZnO+C "heat"/>Zn+CO

Here, Zinc Oxide is reduced to become Zinc

#### Solution 2

In a chemical reaction, when the oxygen is being removed from the compound then it is said to be reduced. Example:

CuO(s)+H2(g)Cu(s)+H2O(l) 2HgO2Hg+O2

Is there an error in this question or solution?
