Assign oxidation numbers to the underlined elements in each of the following species
Then, we have
(+2) + 2(x) = 0
=> 2 + 2x = 0
=>x = -1
Hence, the oxidation number of O is – 1.
Let the oxidation number of `CaO_2` be x
2 + 2x = 0 (∵ oxy No of a = +2)
x = -1
Thus oxidation number of O in `CaO_2` = -1
