Oxidation State of Nitrogen In [Co(NH3)5Cl]Cl2
Acc to oxidation no. Method it's oxidation state is +3
The oxidation state of nitrogen in is -3.
- In the given compound, the element nitrogen is present ammonia.
- To find the oxidation of nitrogen in the given compound, the element attached to it must be identified.
- In case of , nitrogen is a non-metal. When hydrogen is attached to a non-metal it has +1 charge.
- In case of the given compound the sum of oxidation number of individual element present in the compound equals to zero as per the following equation:
Let the oxidation state of nitrogen be 'X'
X + (+3) = 0
X + 3 = 0
X = -3
- Thus the oxidation state of nitrogen in is identified as -3.
when a light ray travels from from one optical medium to the another we know that refraction takes place, and so light after refracting either bend towards the normal or move away from the normal, this happens , because depending on the rarer or denser medium.....so we say that the speed has also changed .This is clear that the speed changes but why do we say that the wavelength has changed...
