# How do you calculate an oxidation number?

## How do you calculate an oxidation number?

The oxidation number of each atom can be calculated by subtracting the sum of lone pairs and electrons it gains from bonds from the number of valence electrons. Bonds between atoms of the same element (homonuclear bonds) are always divided equally.

What is the oxidation state of cr2o72 −?

+ 6
The sum of the oxidation numbers in Cr2O72-, a polyatomic ion, is -2, the charge of the ion. There are seven oxygen atoms, so the total charge is − 2⋅7 = − 14. So, a chromium atom here has an oxidation number of + 6.
