Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Lesly on Tuesday, November 8, 2011 at 9:02pm.

When looking at the Periodic Table, the oxidation state of hydrogen is +1; however my teacher told me that the net charge of hydrogen is 0. I do not understand why this is? Also, How may one calculate the charge of an element if only given the number of protons and neutrons (I attempted to answer this by looking at the Periodic table at the oxidation state, but was wrong) Thank you for your answer!
