Oxidation state of elements in free state.


Oxidation state of elements in free state.

 Q: Why the Oxidation number of all elements in free state and molecules having same atoms always zero?

Ans:    Oxidation number shows discrepancy of attraction between two atoms in a molecule or electronegativity differences. In free states, atoms are always neutral and in molecules of similar atoms, the attraction between atoms and electronegativity of all the bonded atoms are same.
