Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Katherine on Sunday, May 20, 2012 at 7:27pm.

I'm a bit iffy on oxidation numbers... can someone please tell me if this is correct?

Assign oxidation states to each element on both sides of the equation : KClO2--->KCl+O2

Reactants
K = +1
Cl = +1
O = -2

Products
K = +1
Cl = -1
O = 0

the element being reduced is Cl and the element being oxidized is Oxygen... is that correct?
