What is oxidation state?
Asked by Pragnya Kar | 30th Jun, 2014, 11:44: PM
Oxidation state of an atom can be defined as the charge which it acquires in ionic form.
It is a number assigned to an element in chemical combination which represents the number of electrons lost (or gained, if the number is negative), by an atom of that element in the compound.
