REDOX REACTION: POTASSIUM NITRATE & SUCROSE
Combustion - An Oxidation Reduction Reaction
Combustion is a redox reaction. Potassium nitrate is the oxidizing agent, which is reduced, and the sucrose is the reducing agent, which is oxidized. The carbon in the sucrose loses electrons, while the oxygen in the potassium nitrate gains electrons.
