Balancing Redox Reactions

Postby Sonia Perez 1G » Sun Jan 31, 2016 8:00 pm

When balancing the following redox reaction, what would be the oxidation state for o3?

o3 + Br- --> O2 + BrO3-

I believe the oxidation number is 0 for ozone.

I believe the oxidation state of ozone would be 0 since it is a tri-atomic form of oxygen. Since it is not paired with anything in specific, it would have an oxidation state of 0. Even though it is a very reactive substance I believe, since it is by itself and is not paired in a particular compound, the oxidation state will be 0.
