## Can you oxidize SO4?

Oxidation-Reduction: Sulfate is a very weak oxidizing agent. Since sulfur is in its maximum oxidation number in sulfate ion, this ion cannot act as a reducing agent.

## What is the oxidation number of H2SO4?

+6
Explanation: In sulfuric acid, the molecular formula is H2SO4 . Oxygen almost always has an oxidation number of −2 , so 4 oxygen atoms means the charge is 8− . Sulfur, in this case, has an oxidation number of +6 , which means that SO4 ion has an overall charge of 2− .

What is the oxidation state of S in na2s4o6?

The sum of the oxidation numbers is zero for an electrically neutral compound and equals the overall charge for anionic species. So the oxidation number of S in \$N{a_2}{S_4}{O_6}\$is \$ + 2.5\$. The answer is B. Sulphur is abundant, multivalent and nonmetallic.

### What is the oxidation number of no3?

For example, in NO3– the nitrogen is assigned an oxidation number of +5 and each oxygen an oxidation number of –2. This arbitrary assignment corresponds to the nitrogen’s having lost its original five valence electrons to the electronegative oxygens.

### What is the oxidation number of k2cr2o7?

Let x be the oxidation number of two chromiums. So, two chromium atoms have an oxidation number of +12. So one chromium atom will have an oxidation number of +12 /2=+6. So oxidation number of Cr in K2Cr2O7 is +6.

What is oxidation number of S in na2s4o6 and na2so3?

Explanation: It is known that oxidation state of sodium is +1, so oxidation state for two sodium atoms will be +2.

+2 and +4.

#### What is oxidation number of N2?

zero
N2 is a molecule that is the elemental form of nitrogen, and its atoms have no charge. The oxidation number for these S, K, and N atoms will be zero.

What is the oxidation number of P in kh2po3?

Then + 1 + 2 + P – 6 = 0 P – 3 = 0 P = +3 The oxidation number of phosphorusP.
