Find the oxidation state of sodium in Na2O2.
Let the oxidation state of Na be x. The oxidation state of oxygen, in case of peroxides, is –1.
2(x) + 2(-1) = 0
2x - 2 = 0
2x = 2
x = +1
Therefore, the oxidation sate of sodium is +1.
Let x be the oxidation state of Na in Na2O2 2x + 2 (-1) = 0 2x – 2 = 0 2x = 2 x = +1.
