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

a. BiO+

b. PO 4 3-    c. NO 2    d. Hg 2 2+

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The oxidation states of all the atoms in BiO+ 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 and element whose oxidation states are fixed are assigned. For compounds with charge that is for ionic compound, the sum of oxidation states is equal to the charge of the ionic compound...

Interpretation Introduction

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.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The oxidation states of all the atoms in NO2 - 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.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The oxidation states of all the atoms in Hg2 2 + 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.
