## Chemistry and Chemical Reactivity (9th Edition)

a) $Au$ has been oxidized, since its oxidation number increases from 0 to +1, thus it's the reducing agent. $O_2$ has been reduced, since its oxidation number decreases from 0 to -1, thus it's the oxidizing agent. b) Number of moles of gold: $10^6\ g\times 0.019/100\div 196.97\ g/mol=0.9646\ mol$ From stoichiometry: $1.929\ mol$ NaCN Volume: $1.929\ mol\div 0.075\ M=25.72\ L$
