For problem 13.1, part a asks us to identify the elements undergoing changes in oxidation state and indicate the initial and final oxidation numbers for these elements. I am not sure how to to find the initial and final (the solutions manual got C was oxidized from 2- to 1-). How do we identify these numbers?
Fundamentals Section K of the textbook (pages F78-F81) explains how to assign oxidation numbers with some examples. I have attached a picture of the rules for assigning oxidation numbers.
