Fluorine is a chemical element with symbol F and atomic number 9. It is the
lightest halogen ..... oxygen (the only known compound with oxygen in an
oxidation state of +2), sulfur, and selenium; tet...
Explains what oxidation states (oxidation numbers) are, and how to calculate ...
Remember that fluorine is the most electronegative element with oxygen second.
Jan 26, 2014 ... This page explains what oxidation states (oxidation numbers) are and ....
Chlorine has an oxidation state of -1 (no fluorine or oxygen atoms are ...
Flourine will always be -1 because, well, it has no other oxidation states. In OH, O
is -1+1=0 (O is more electronegative than H so it must be -1 in that respect, but +1
Fluorine (F) only has oxidation number, –1. Oxygen (O) has oxidation number -2,
except in peroxides where it is –1. The alkali metals (Group 1) have 1 valence.
Oxidation numbers indicate where the electrons are and it is assigned to
elements ... "The oxidation number of an element is the number of electrons that
need to be added to the element to make a neutral atom. ... Oxidation number of
All halogens (besides fluorine) have a -1 oxidation number in compounds, except
when with oxygen or other halogens where their oxidation numbers can be ...
Fluorine always has an oxidation number of -1. As noted above, the oxidation
numbers of certain elements can vary for several factors (metal ions, oxygen
The oxidation number of a free element is always 0. The oxidation number of a
monatomic ion equals the charge of the ion. Fluorine in compounds is always ...
Jul 9, 2004 ... Certain elements assume the same oxidation number in different compounds;
fluorine, for example, has the oxidation number −1 in all its ...
