Determine the oxidation number of the bolded atom of the following compound.
Oxidation Number Rules
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
+6: oxygen in compounds always has a formal oxidation number of -2 except in peroxides, and hydrogen has a formal oxidation number of +1.
S must therefore have a value of +6 in this acid anion, to result in the total of -8 from four oxygen atoms in the substance and the +1 from hydrogen having a total charge of -1 for the acid anion.
Pls give me the answer immediately without explaning
