I am having trouble in understanding how to find the oxidation numbers of elements in chemical solutions involving ligands. What is the process to go about in finding oxidation numbers of the metals with ligands?
You can find the oxidation numbers by identifying the charged ligands first and determining what charge that leaves the compound at. And then see what the given total charge of the compound should be and calculate the oxidation number based on that (whether the compound is neutral or 2-, etc.).
