For the complete redox reaction given here, (a) break down each reaction into its half reactions; (b)
identify the oxidizing agent; and (c) identify the reducing agent.
2 Li + S -> Li2S
Here is my work:
(a) Li -> Li+ + 2e-
and S + 2e- -> S
(b) The oxidizing agent is S (because its losing electrons).
(c) The reducing agent is Li (because its gaining electrons).
Is this correct? I'm not really confident in my techniques here.
