Oxidation Worksheet

Oxidation state is used to indicate the degeree of oxidation of an atom in chemical compound. Oxidation states are represented by integers, it can be any whole number which doesn’t have fractional part.

In simple words oxidation can be defined as, “The combination of a substance with oxygen.”
