. Assign oxidation states to all of the atoms in each of the

following.

a. NBr3

c. PBr5

b. SeF6

d. CH4

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The oxidation states of all the atoms in NBr3 should be determined.

Concept Introduction:

The oxidation state is defined as the charge(s) that an atom would have when electron(s) were transferred completely from a molecule or ion.

Explanation

The oxidation state is defined as the charge(s) that an atom would have when electron(s) were transferred completely from a molecule or ion.

While determining the oxidation state of binary compound, the element with greater electronegativity is assigned with negative value of oxidation state which is equal to the charge as an anion in ionic compounds. For compounds with no charge, the sum of oxidation states is zero...
