Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Alex on Wednesday, February 13, 2008 at 2:49pm.

This is for oxidation numbers. I need to know how to show my work.

Ex: for NaClO, I have to find the oxidation number for Cl
I showed my work.
NaClO
+1+x+(-2)=0
+1+x-2=0
x-2=-1
x=-1+2
x=+1
Therefore, the oxidation number for chlorine in NaClO is +1.

Cl^-
I know that the oxidation number is -1 but I have no idea how to show my work.
