    What is the oxidation number for nitrogen in NH4+?

    Since H = +1, N + 4(+1) = +1

    N = -3What is the oxidation number for nitrogen in N2H5+2N + 5(+1) = +1N = -2Which species is oxidized?N is being oxidized from -3 to -2.Which species is reduced?The Cl atom in ClO3- is being reducedWhich species is the oxidizing agent?ClO3- is the oxidizing agentWhich species is the reducing agent? 

    NH4+ is the reducing agent
