The Formal Charge on Nitrogen in No3 Is?


The formal charge on nitrogen in NO3 is 0 and this is the most stable form for nitrogen. Nitrogen has five valence electrons, so it is most stable when it has three bonds and one lone pair of electrons.

its 5.
The oxidation states are -2 for oxygen, +2 for nitrogen. NO (nitric oxide) violates the octet rule. That might be why you are having trouble with it. NO is a rather unusual molecule
In the ozone, O3, molecule the two O-O bonds are non-polar
