# The Oxidation State of Nitrogen in Dinitrogen Trioxide is ____ - Chemistry

The oxidation state of nitrogen in dinitrogen trioxide is ____

(a) + 1

(b) + 2

(c) + 3

(d) + 4

#### Solution

+ 3

N2O3 Oxidation state for O= -2

The oxidation state of N = x

∴ 2x + 3(-2) = 0

∴ 2x - 6 = 0

∴ 2x = 6

∴  x =6/2 = 3
