Question

Give reasons for the following: N2O5 is more acidic than N2O3

Solution

Oxidation state of N in N2O5 = +5

Oxidation state of N in N2O3 = +3

In N2O5, nitrogen is present in highest oxidation state of +5. The oxide of an element in its highest oxidation state tend to be the least stable and most strongly acidic. Hence, N2O5 is more acidic than N2O3.
