Title: Activity: Oxidation Numbers I
Caption: Instructions:
  1. Choose an element to show a compound containing that element, and the oxidation numbers associated with hydrogen, oxygen, and that element in the compound.
  2. Remove or add atoms of each species by clicking the down or up arrow next to that element. Not all the "compounds" produced in this way are real, stable compounds, but the oxidation numbers even for the fictional ones are appropriate.
  3. You can change the charge state by clicking the up or down arrow next to the Charge indicator to produce an ion. Not all the "ions" produced in this way are real, stable ions, but the oxidation numbers even for the fictional ones are appropriate.
Keywords: oxidation, number, state
