Potassium dichromate ACS reagent, ≥99.0% _ Potassium dichromate is a red-orange colored solid. Its crystals belong to the triclinic crystal system. On heating above 600°C, it decomposes to give oxygen, potassium chromate and chromium(III) oxide. It acts as a strong oxidizing agent in acidic media. It can be synthesized by the fusion of chromium(III) oxide with potassium carbonate and nitrate or oxygen.
Students will be practicing identifying the oxidizing agent and reducing agent in a REDOX reaction by completing this practice worksheet. The worksheet contains 9 questions, some multiple choice and some fill in the blank, that cover identifying a REDOX reaction, and the oxidizing and reducing agents in a REDOX reaction. This practice worksheet can be done in class or as homework.
