Oxidation Number Question..
« on: July 13, 2006, 01:46:51 AM »
Does O2 have an oxidation of zero or negative two?  I know atoms have oxidation numbers of 0, but I'm not sure if O2 and H2 are exceptions.

So what was the answer?
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex
