A Mole Of N2H4 Loses 10 Mol Of Electrons To Electrons To Form A New Compound A. Assuming That All The Nitrogen Appears In The New Compound, What Is The Oxidation State Of Nitrogen In A?

The oxidation state of nitrogen in A is +3

The oxidation state of N in hydrazine is -2.

If one mole of hydrazine contains two moles of nitrogen and loses 10 moles of electrons, one nitrogen atom loses five electrons. Hence, its oxidation number will increase by 5. Therefore, the oxidation number of N in compound A will be (−2) + (5)= +3.
