Question

In the reaction, C2O24 CO2 , the total number of electrons lost per mole of C2O24 is


  1. 4N

  2. N

  3. 2N

  4. 3N


Solution

The correct option is C

2N


Oxidation state of ‘C’ in C2O24=+3 & Oxidation state of ‘C’ in CO2=+4

Change in oxidation state of ‘C’ = 4 – 3 = 1

Since there are two ‘C’ atoms in C2O24 ; Number of electrons transferred = 2 x 1 = 2 e
