Q. 59 C3.5( 2 Votes )
Describe the extraction of zinc metal from its sulphide ore (zinc blende). Write equations of the reactions involved.
2ZnS(s) + 3O2(g) -> 2ZnO(g) + 2SO2(g)
Then, zinc oxide is heatd with carbonto form zinc metal. This process is termed as reduction
Zn(s) + C(s) -> Zn(s) + CO(g)
