A reducing agent is a substance that causes another substance to reduce. So to identify an oxidizing agent, simply look at the oxidation number of an atom before and after the reaction. If the oxidation number is greater in the product, then it lost electrons and the substance was oxidized.
Steps
1.Assign oxidation numbers to all atoms in the equation. ...
2.Compare oxidation numbers from the reactant side to the product side of the equation. ...
3.The element oxidized is the one whose oxidation number increased.
4.The element reduced is the one whose oxidation number decreased.
