Ozone oxidation number

Postby OliviaShearin2E » Tue Feb 06, 2018 2:41 pm

What is the oxidation number of ozone (O3)? I think it's zero but I don't know if this qualifies a stable form of oxygen. I'm asking in context of problem 14.5a.

O3 is a neutral substance so it's oxidation number is 0 (there is no negative or positive charge on the compound)
