them ... Remember that fluorine is the most electronegative element with oxygen
second. .... between magnesium and hydrochloric acid or hydrogen chloride gas:.
 Oxidation numbers are assigned to atoms, not elements. This means ... F. The
oxidation number for oxygen is −2 unless it is in oxygen gas, ozone (O3), or a.
Oxygen (O) has oxidation number -2, except in peroxides where it is –1. The
alkali metals (Group 1) have 1 valence. This is lost to achieve noble gas ...
