Question

The sum of the oxidation state of the nitrogen atom in hyponitrous acid, nitric acid and nitrous acid is ______.


Solution

Hyponitrous acid,
$$N_2(OH)_2$$
                 $$2x + 2(-1) = 0$$
                    $$2x = 2$$
                    $$x = +1$$

Nitric acid,
$$HNO_3$$
                    $$1 + x  + 3(-2) = 0$$
                     $$x = +5$$
Nitrous acid,
$$HNO_2$$
                     $$ 1 + x +2(-2) = 0$$
                      $$x = +3$$
Sum of the oxidation state of the nitrogen atom in hyponitrous acid, nitric acid and nitrous acid is $$1+5+3=9$$.
